Friends With Money (2006)

While I didn't expect much from this Hollywood production, I was left with something to chew on once the credits rolled.

Jennifer Aniston plays an unfocused and unsuccessful woman whose current job is cleaning houses. Her closest friends however are all very wealthy - wealthy beyond reason really. Everything in these relationships tend to revolve around personal value. Even the fairytale ending caters to this idea that wealth makes the person.

It was a tad difficult to identify with people who either had way too much money or with people who felt so pressured to fit in with people who had way too much money. Just a tad though.

Some superb actors form the cast with Simon McBurney stealing all of his scenes. Catherine Keener and Frances McDormand.
