Additional Information

Working Girl (1988) - The tenacity of women in the workplace is portrayed in great detail (and with brilliantly evolving wardrobe and hairstyle cues) in this multi-Oscar-nominated, critically-acclaimed dramatic thriller-lite. After Staten Island-based secretary Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) publicly shames her uptown colleague (played by pre-scandal Kevin Spacey) for his bawdy behavior, she is reassigned to up-and-coming financial executive Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver), who immediately assumes credit for Tess’ unique investment ideas. But when Katharine finds herself laid up with a broken leg, Tess begins her drastic, strategic transformation. Working-class perms are traded for “serious hair” as a secretary climbs the executive ranks in this modern classic from ultimate actor’s director, Mike Nichols. Director: Mike Nichols. Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Joan Cusack. 35mm, color, 113 min.
