“Book Club” is a movie about two women: Carol Alvarado and Kate Beckinsale, two ladies that each read the same book, same theme, each following its own way. However, the book they both read is actually one and the same.
During the movie, the two characters met Charlie Frumkin, a writer who is trying to write a new novel, and he tells them about his latest masterpiece. The two writers promptly invite him to their homes and soon, the two books will meet in an epic battle of sorts.
