Spike Heels by Theresa Rebeck

Guys don't get it and they never quite have. They don't understand something, which women have always known: The totemic power of a great pair of shoes.

 

James Castle Stevens, J. Richey Nash

Georgie and Lydia, the heroines of Theresa Rebeck's 1990 comedy "Spike Heels" don't make ridiculous demands of life: They just want true love and good sex. The men in their lives have potential but are flawed: They are both, in their own way, manipulative. Andrew is noble but can be passive-aggressive. Edward fits a more traditional, testosterone-driven male chauvinist model. Still, neither is entirely without redeeming social value.

Leslie Channon, Michelle Pratt

 

The two women are hip, smart and undeniably attractive. To be in relationships that will be ultimately satisfying, they have to approach them as equal partners rather than subordinate themselves to their men.  Solution: Create a balance of power. This means spike heels.

Why spike heels? They give a woman a feeling of empowerment. Plus, they make your legs look amazing.

Directed by Paul Millet.

Produced by Leslie Channon & Brian David Pope.

Starring: Leslie Channon, J. Richard Nash, Michelle Pratt, and James Castle Stevens.
