Book Club is a 2018 American romantic comedy film directed by Bill Holderman, in his directorial debut, and written by Holderman and Erin Simms. It stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen.  

The story centers on four women, lifelong friends, who have attended a monthly book club 30 years, bonding over the suggested literature.  Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, and her daughters would like her to move closer to them in Arizona as they perceive her to be in danger because she’s living alone. Vivian (Jane Fonda) owns and builds hotels, enjoys her independence and wants no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is a federal judge who’s been single since she divorced her son’s father over 15 years ago. Carol (Mary Steenburgen) is married to Bruce but after 35 years they have recently lacked intimacy.
One day they read the provocative bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey and are turned on by the content. Viewing it as a wakeup call, they decide to expand their lives and chase pleasures that have eluded them. With newfound confidence, they each begin to come alive as exciting romances are ignited and old flames are rekindled….

Vivian: I would like to introduce you to Christian Grey. It was a bestseller made into a movie.
Sharon: We are not reading this.
Vivian: It’s my month! When it’s your month, you can choose whatever boring, depressing book you want.
Sharon: I’m not sure this qualifies as a book.
Vivian: Well, fifty million people can’t be wrong.
Sharon: To… To even be holding this book is embarrassing.
Vivian: Who’s judging you, your cat?
Carol: I do like the idea of a romance.
Sharon: We are too old!
Carol: But it says right here “for mature audiences.”
Diane: Yeah, that certainly sounds like us.
Sharon: We started this book club to stimulate our minds.
Vivian: Well, from what I hear, this book is quite stimulating.
Diane: Oh, God.
Vivian: So, come on! Let’s toast to our new book.
Carol: All right.
Vivian: Oh, good. Drink up. Hoist that glass. Happy reading, ladies!
