Coming to The Elite this summer’s Vanities by Jack Heifner.
This bittersweet comedy is an astute snapshot, and sharp chronicle, of the lives of three Texas girls in 1963. Joanne, Kathy, and Mary are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged; their friendship, which once thrived on assumption as well coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common. But old bonds run deep as the past and the present collide with honor and old ties that somehow still link these three friends together.
