If there ever was a pivotal movie in my lifetime, it was Beaches. Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey teach us about the power of friendship, the resolve of love and the determination to have our final wishes met.
Remembering the movie makes me almost melancholy for the story telling of yesterday. The drama of this movie was in the story. As a struggling entertainer involves herself in the cynical world of trying to make it, her friend – a rich debutante – finds out she is sick. As they struggle to take care of each other they each learn that friendship withstands time if you just let it.
Do you remember this movie? I first saw it in theaters so many years ago. But with the DVD, you get amazing bonus features that make this a gem for any movie collection. Included are the 1989 Grammy Award winning song, ‘The Wind Beneath My Wings’, Barbara Hershey’s screen test, Bloopers and so much more.
Grab your best friend, you Kleenex and a glass of wine and curl up to relive a Chic Flick that will last in your heart forever and make you value your friendships more!
