'Career Girls' doesn't work within a narrative, but is best viewed as a series of character encounters, playing out in two time-frames. Annie and Hannah meet up for a reunion weekend years after they shared a flat together as students. In the present and the past, they cross paths - with credibility stretched to breaking point - with a past boyfriend, another flatmate, and a schizophrenic fellow student. The emotions and social backdrop ring true where the characters themselves crucially do not.
