Trailer for Kim Cattrall in Sweet Bird of Youth

I'm kicking myself for not getting a ticket to see Sweet Bird of Youth when I was in London last week especially since Kim Cattrall has been so outspoken on the issue of aging and women and Hollywood. I found this trailer interesting because a- we really don't see trailers for plays, and b- how focused this is on Kim Cattrall.

Women, Aging and Hollywood

In recent interviews, both Kim Cattrall and Susan Sarandon have both spoken about aging in Hollywood. Neither had good things to say about their experiences.
