About

From Wikipedia:

Between Friends (Canadian title: Nobody Makes Me Cry) is a 1983 made-for-HBO drama film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Carol Burnett. It is based on the 1975 novel Nobody Makes Me Cry by Shelley List. The film premiered in the United States on HBO on September 11, 1983 and was also broadcast in Canada under its alternate title Nobody Makes Me Cry on First Choice (Pay-TV) on October 5, 1983.

Synopsis:

Mary Catherine Castelli (Carol Burnett) is a fifty-year-old real estate agent whose husband left her for a younger woman; since then she's been making up for lost time with short term relationships with a number of men, some of whom are married. Deborah Shapiro (Elizabeth Taylor) is also middle-aged and newly divorced, though she is still coming to terms with being single again and has had little luck finding a new beau. Mary and Deborah meet literally by accident when they get into a fender-bender outside Mary's office, but the two soon strike up a friendship after Deborah asks Mary to help her sell her house. Together, Mary and Deborah help each other deal with their new lives as single women, the difficulty of getting back into the dating pool, and the mildly terrifying onset of middle age and menopause.
