Beaches (1988)

Movie Review

This classic American film tells the story of two female friends who go through life side by side. The main characters are complete opposites. One has made a career as a lawyer, the other dreams of becoming a popular actress and making a breakthrough. During their 30 years of friendship, they have gone through many trials of tragedy, quarrels, resentments, love experiences, creative pursuits and failures, as well as illness. “On the Beach” is an example of a film that gives hope that we all have a soul mate. And, by the way, the film is a creation of Garry Marshall, who has “Pretty Woman,” “Runaway Bride” and the recently released “Insufferable Ladies” in his piggy bank.
