Four women bond over their shared love of designer shoes. What begins as a support group for shoe addicts quickly becomes a lifeline as the women become a crucial part of each other's complicated lives. Orlagh Cassidy gives life to the dynamic characters. She portrays the refined senator's wife with a haughty, clipped tone and the young nanny with a bit of self-conscious apology in her voice. Particularly comic are the scenes in which Sandra, an agoraphobic phone-sex operator, assumes her alter ego for the benefit of her callers. Fans of chick lit will appreciate these dysfunctional characters, especially as Cassidy's narration gives depth to the subtle differences in their backgrounds and personalities.
