Netflix films with strong female leads: The First Wives Club

Based on the best-selling 1992 novel of the same name by Olivia Goldsmith, The First Wives Club stars Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler as three middle-aged divorcées who reunited for the first time in nearly 30 years at the funeral of their college friend. After learning that their friend took her life over the marriage of her ex-husband to a younger woman, the trio make a pact to get back at their exes who also left them for younger women. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the Hugh Wilson-directed movie developed a cult following and helped revitalize the careers of the three leads.
