The sequel to the 2008 box office smash again directed by Michael Patrick King and reuniting the four leading ladies added a touch of glamour to cinemas across the country over the Bank Holiday weekend.
In Sex and The City 2 life is everything the ladies ever wished it to be, but it wouldn’t be Sex and the City if life didn’t hold a few more surprises … this time in the form of a glamorous, sun-drenched adventure that whisks the women away from New York to one of the most luxurious, exotic and vivid places on earth, where the party never ends and there’s something mysterious around every corner. It’s an escape that comes exactly at the right moment for the four friends, who are finding themselves in – and fighting against – the traditional roles of marriage, motherhood and more. After all, sometimes you just have to get away with the girls.
