Synopses & Reviews
All the beautiful people live in the idyllic village of Stepford, Connecticut, an affluent suburban Eden populated with successful, satisfied hubbys and their beautiful, dutiful wives. For Joanna Eberhart, a recent arrival with her husband and two children, it all seems too perfect to be true -- from the sweet, accommodating Welcome Wagon lady to all those cheerful, friendly faces in the supermarket checkout lines. But just beneath the town's flawless surface, something is sordid and wrong -- something abominable with roots in the local Men's Association. And it may already be too late for Joanna to save herself from being devoured by Stepford's hideous perfection.
"An efficient German motorcar of a book masterful, ridiculously well crafted, and, like the ladies of Stepford themselves, flawless." Esquire

The classic novel, now a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler, Matthew Broderick, and Christopher Walken, directed by Frank Oz (The Score, In & Out).
