An all-female comedy dream team featuring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey is launching Netflix Original comedy Wine Country.
It’s the perfect film for a night in – here’s all you need to know about the cast and what happens in the film.
When is Wine Country on Netflix?
Comedy film Wine Country is a Netflix Original and is set to begin streaming on Friday, May 10.
What happens in it?
It’s Rebecca’s 50th birthday, and while she’s reluctant to celebrate the milestone, her best friend Abby has decided to throw her a party with some of their closest friends.
The group of women are heading to the scenic Napa Valley for the weekend to enjoy some wine in each other’s company, and Abby has put together a strict itinerary to make sure they have the best time possible.
But each guest turns up with their own issues. Workaholic Catherine, post-op Val, homebody Jenny, and weary mother Naomi, are all looking forward to a relaxing weekend, but find Abby’s plans the opposite of soothing.
As the alcohol flows, the women start to question their friendships with each other and what their futures are going to be.
