Calendar Girls is inspired by the true story of a group of women who bare all--or nearly all--for charity and become international celebrities as a result. The Women's Institute in Great Britain encourages the ancient skills of jam-making, flower pressing, knitting and baking. So when a group of extraordinary women are looking for a new way to raise money, they decide to take the annual Women's Institute calendar, normally featuring landscapes or flowers, and create something traditional--but with a twist. Behind the baked goods, the apple pressing and the flower arranging, the women are completely nude. Calendar Girls is a comedy of outsize proportions.
