Synopsis

It is 1982, and Sofia is perfectly suited to the epoch. The queen bee of her coterie of gossipy friends, she lives a life of leisure and luxury, always wearing the right clothes, carrying the proper brand of designer handbag – and never missing a moment to cut down the arrivistes who try to break into her social circle. When economic crisis strikes Mexico, Sofia wallows in attempts to keep up appearances, but must eventually face what is left of her existence when the money is all gone. The Good Girls maintains a precise balance of gentle mockery and deep compassion – it is difficult to like Sofia, but impossible not to love her as we watch her precariously constructed world of empty signifiers come crashing down.
