Bridget Jones 4 plot

With the technological face of the world changing, so is Bridget's diary writing medium. In the new chapter of embarrassments, her previous love triangles and baby stories will take a back seat as Jones grapples with the new age of mortifying channels through texts and tweets. 

Mad About a Boy will not have her merely navigate through life, work and every messy engagement that comes along with it as a 51-year-old single mother. Could a new romance with a hot, younger somebody be on the table?
