'Brief Encounters' DVD Review

Jacqueline Gold wrote a book titled, "Good Vibrations: The True Story of Ann Summers". Now Ann Summer's group is a company that was started by Ms. Gold in the 1980's and sold lingerie and sex toys at parties. It was based on the Tupperware approach where one woman or a group of women would throw a party and invite others to come and see the items to be sold. It was a great way for housewives to make an extra dollar.

'Brief Encounters' is the story of four women who come together to broaden their horizons so to speak. Steph (Sophie Rundle), Dawn (Sharon Rooney), Pauline (Penelope Wilton) and Nita (Angela Griffin) are our future businesswomen for the Ann Summers company. What makes this a great show is that when this show takes place these types of parties didn't go over well at first. For instance, husbands and families didn't take to this sort of business at first. If you think about it society in general didn't take to them at first.

For some of our women they took on this sort of job because husbands were getting laid off and bills needed to be paid. For others they simply wanted to spread their wings so to speak, from the day in and day out routine of being wife and mother. What's great is that once everything takes off the women can see changes taking place in their personality and surroundings. The woman grew in their own confidence and others could see changes. This would be a plus and for some a challenge in their lives.

Acorn brings this wonderful show to DVD on November 29th, 2016. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This is a must for all of you who enjoy British comedy/drama. This will make an excellent addition to that personal library. So sit back and watch our young entrepreneurs take off into the business world of lingerie and sex toys and the fun it brings to all involved.
