No such thing as housewives (2017)

Housework is like life itself: you get one room sorted, only to find the rest of the house has gone to shit.

In the comedy No such thing as housewifes, two sisters and their mother are forced to set aside their differences as they reflect on the lives they are living and the homes they are running.

Georgie is a young, ambitious control freak who is desperate to get pregnant and climb the ladder at the advertising agency where she works. Her older sister Margot is married with three kids and has just lost her job as a journalist. Her new ambition: to become a school run mum.

Their bohemian mother Lucy has got herself into trouble by taking out too many mortgages on her beautiful home.

Georgie and Margot cannot bear to lose their family home and start looking for a way to save it. Only the bonus that Georgie can earn by coming up with the golden idea for an advertising campaign can get them out of financial trouble. This means working with her attractive colleague Dominic to explore the concept of the “modern day housewife”; a task that dredges up a lot more than the women ever bargained for.
