Uptown Girls

During the length of the film, Molly increases in her abilities and competence. What examples can you find of that growth? Why was it important for her to acquire basic skills rather than rely solely on connections to get a job?

After Neal leaves her for another woman, what is Molly’s reaction when he renews his interest in her? Do you think he was sincere? Do you agree or disagree with the film’s conclusion?

Molly has two friends who come to her rescue. What are the different attitudes of Ingrid and Huey? How does each one of them help her? Would it be difficult to have a friend like Molly?
