Female desire is not a topic that gets a lot of space in mainstream Hollywood movies. And the desire of women north of 45? Well, that's been almost exclusively the province of Nancy Meyers, Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton. There have been others, sure, but it's often either played for humor or scrubbed and sanitized of anything remotely carnal. Usually it's some horrifyingly infantilized combination of both. It's as though someone decided that audiences couldn't possibly bear to watch a woman of menopause age acting or even feeling sexual and few have dared to challenge that notion.
