How to Please a Woman

Movie Store

Buy or rent 20 July.

Gina (Sally Phillips, Off the Rails) has recently lost her job and feels stuck in a passionless marriage. She has always lived life on the sidelines – that is, until she is met with the groundbreaking business opportunity of converting a team of well-built moving guys into well-built housecleaners. Finally, she is the boss she has always wanted to be. But, as her business booms, her clientele demands something more – sex, or better yet, pleasure. Faced with something far more than she imagined, Gina and her team launch an enterprise that is all about getting intimacy right between people. Written and directed by Renée Webster (Aftertaste) this funny and sensitive comedy has been a big hit with Australian audiences, and likely to be one of the most successful local films in 2022.
