Three friends, Elise, Brenda and Annie are brought together years after college after the death of their fourth best friend, Cynthia. All four have lost touch, but the feeling of not having been there for a friend who needed them makes them realize that life is short. They all confess to having marital problems, and face that their lives cannot go on the way it has for a long time now. They get back what is theirs, either emotionally or in the form of a paycheck and through the process found their way back to their friendship.
Stockard Channing. And I wish she would have had a bigger part in the movie. But because of my love for her I am always reminded to take care of my friends and to make sure that they always know they have someone to turn to no matter what happens in their life. This movie taught me more than any others out there. It celebrates women on a whole other level. They are all independent, strong, smart and they use their brains, not their looks (although if you ask me women can only get more beautiful with age! Hollywood got it wrong!), and a fierce woman might just be the sexiest thing I can think of, to be honest!
Watch it? Definitely. It is a cult classic. There is going to be a re-booth in the form of a TV series soon and I can't wait to see it! This story has so many layers and it teaches you all the right lessons. I'm letting you know in advance that my children will be forced to watch this over and over again until they learn to love themselves, care for their friends and if life pushes you to push back justly! Now please celebrate women! They gave us life and we should make the best of that life!
Until the next item on my list!
