There are so many book lovers who are also in book clubs — and so many book clubs that consider themselves lovers of wine as much as books. This gift is ideal for anyone who falls into that category.

Fonda. Bergen. Keaton. Steenburgen. "Book Club." Sure, "Avengers: Infinity War" came out a few weeks ago, but now this is the greatest crossover event in history. Four of the most iconic actresses of the 20th century come together for a film in which their book club reads "50 Shades of Grey"? Where can I line up? This movie is either in your wheelhouse or it's not, but for those looking forward to "Book Club," it delivers. For what it is -- a breezy bit of Nancy Meyers-like fantasy, featuring four beloved actresses talking about sex, baby -- it's exceedingly enjoyable. But beyond its shiny surface and real estate pornography, the picture, directed by Bill Holderman and co-written by Holderman and Erin Simms, is a way to talk about the dehumanizing ways older people are desexualized in our culture and a rallying cry against that trend. 1:43. 3 stars. -- K.W.
