Antonia & Jane (1991)




Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

This film is a painfully realistic but ultimately upbeat look at an enduring friendship between opposites. Beautiful, sophisticated, and self-assured, Antonia has it all, or so it seems to the pudgy wallflower Jane. Jane vents her feelings in her therapist's office, unaware that Antonia longs to be more like her.
