Antonia and Jane (1990)



Plain Jane Hartman hates her life. She’s goofy, boring and only has sex if she reads Iris Murdoch novels out loud to her loopy boyfriend. Her oldest friend Antonia McGill knows about everything. She orders the right food; she can complain and get results. She’s beautiful and has a brilliant career. Is it any wonder that they hate each other’s guts?

Note: Upgraded with LDrip on July 8th, 2022. Many thanks to Stuart for sending me a better quality copy of this film/TV episode, overall much better quality and colors compared to the old TVRip from the BBC airing, my only complain is that they went a bit crazy with the brightness levels lol.
