This sequel to the 2018 romantic comedy reunites the four lifelong friends Viv (Jane Fonda), Diane (Diane Keaton), Sharon (Candice Bergen) and Carol (Mary Steenburgen). The first time around, they were reading “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Now the “Book Club” gang is back, and books have been cast aside altogether in favour of a trip to Italy to celebrate Viv’s impending marriage to Arthur (Don Johnson). But with lost luggage and unexpected romantic complications to contend with, all does not go smoothly.

Book Club: The Next Chapter is silly and sentimental, but it’s also basically well-meaning and inoffensive. It is a light-hearted film which affirms that there are multiple ways to find happiness as one grows older, with good company, lovely interactions, and breath-taking views of Rome and Venice.
