Beautiful Girls is one of my favorite movies. This is a bold endorsement since I do not have many favorite movies that fall out of the mafia genre. However, every once in awhile, I will love all things about a movie.
This movie was made in 1996, but has these themes that affect you at any age. Without going into too much of the movie details, it comes down to a 'getting on with your life' story after characters take a weekend in their hometown to look back on their life of 30 some years.
These are the things that I love about Beautiful Girls
- The soundtrack...11 years later, it is still good.
- Natalie Portman...at 13, she was an amazing actress.
- The weather reminds me of home.
- I think the writing is clever and quick.
So, if you are looking for a movie to add to your queue, I am giving it my highest midwestern endorsement: four casseroles!
