Career Girls looks at two young career women of 30 who meet up after a long period apart and rediscover the relationship they enjoyed when they shared an apartment years ago. During the course of one weekend of action, they encounter several people with whom they were students in London in the mid '80s and through a series of flashbacks to those youthful days, we build up a picture of the way they have all changed in the intervening years. Moving, sad and funny, it's a film about love and youth and sex and memories.
Mike Leigh cleverly weaves together past and present as we share their memories; the touching, the funny and the sometimes tragic.
