Better late than never (Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood)

I finally got the chance to seee the movie "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" (2002) on cable this weekend. This movie has been on my list of videos to rent for quite a while, but I just hadn't found the time to watch any videos, let alone see movies when they first come out.

I loved it- with its great portrayals from some of my favorite actresses (including Ellen Burstyn, Fionnula Flanagan, Maggie Smith, Shirley Knight, Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd) with a wonderful script!!! Why aren't there more movies like this? Why don't we see more women of our age category than we do? Why aren't there more stories/scripts about women- out there being filmed?
