Love is the most desired of emotions: hard to find, difficult to keep. Many times we have no business falling in love and for fashion journalist Lane Daniels this can be taken literally: it isn’t her business and it isn’t even her job! On February 8, Image Entertainment will release the hit ABC family movie Beauty and the Briefcase: an effervescent story about finding romance in the city and what we will do to keep it close. Based on the popular book Diary of a Working Girl by Daniella Brodsky, Beauty and the Briefcase will be available for an SRP of $27.97 for the DVD and $29.97 for the Blu-ray™.
Lane Daniels (Hilary Duff, A Cinderella Story, “Lizzie McGuire”) is a bright, ambitious journalist who dreams of writing for Cosmopolitan, her favorite magazine. She finally gets her chance to pitch her article, “Switching Careers to Find Love” to Cosmo’s editor Kate White (Emmy™-winner Jaime Pressly, “My Name is Earl”, “Las Vegas”) who enthusiastically accepts the idea, recognizing a potential cover story.
Lane’s editor gives her enthusiastic recruit some very firm, very simple rules: first, land a corporate job. Then, she must date as many eligible co-workers as possible! As Lane navigates her way through her new corporate world, she meets Tom (Michael McMillan, “True Blood”) and Seth (Matt Dallas, “Kyle XY”)…appealing, available: but how do they match up to her ‘checklist’ of ideal male qualities? Then Lane meets Liam (Chris Carmack, “The O.C.”): a dashing music producer working outside her office. Dating him would mean breaking the rules, and suddenly career and love threaten to collide.
Nominated for a 2011 People’s Choice Award, Beauty and the Briefcase charms and captivates with its young and talented cast and appealing, thoughtful story.
