This Shoe is a Nice Fit! The Fall season is when the intelligent, adult films are supposed to come out, and “In Her Shoes” is the one of them. IN HER SHOES Stands Tall that delves into the love/ hate relationship of two disparate sisters in the film resulting in an enjoyably entertaining comedy/ drama featuring a number of topflight performances and hilarious dialogue.
Two sisters, plus a dead mother, a remarried father, and a hostile step-mother. The sisters, each in her way, have perfected the art of losing. The elder, Rose, is an attorney, responsible, lonely, with a closet full of shoes. The younger is Maggie, beautiful, selfish, and irresponsible. Her drunken behavior gets her tossed by her step-mother from her dad’s house; worse behavior gets her tossed from Rose’s apartment. Then, while searching in her father’s desk for money to filch, Maggie finds an address; the past and the future open up to her and, with any luck, may open to her sister as well.
