Conversations with Friends

Frances and Bobbi have been best friends for as long as they could remember. Now at university in Dublin, their popular spoken word poetry performance has gotten them quite a bit of attention. At a recent show a journalist/photographer named Melissa introduces herself. Sophisticated and experienced, Melissa draws the girls into her artistic world of fancy homes and dinner parties. As most of Melissa’s attentions are drawn to Bobbi’s confidence and open sexuality, Melissa’s husband Nick is equally fascinated by Frances and her quiet intellectualism. A handsome struggling actor, Frances is immediately drawn to his charms and all he represents. At least a decade older than the girls, this mysterious couple and their complicated relationships set the friends at odds as they explore feelings they had buried long ago. Experiencing the often painful lessons of love, trust and friendship, Frances and Bobbi must make hard choices that will alter their lives forever. The smooth writing of Irish author Sally Rooney (Normal People) recalls the trials and tribulations of early adulthood. Another book to screen in the works, I am looking forward to watching this on Hulu next year! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
