Who remembers the summer of 1988. When the movie Beaches came out. I can we went to see the original with our cousins and Felix and Mike, yes even the men cried. Those are some of the best memories we have, that movie made so much sense back then. We had lost our sister, and our cousins were more than that, best friends and sisters always.
LionGate is about to release a remake of this famous movie. They Met on a Beach 30 Years Ago! Some Friendships Last Forever!
Celebrate the power of everlasting friendship with `BEACHES’ available for the first time on Blu-ray, featuring a new digital restoration. Academy Award® nominees Bette Midler for Best Actress 1991: ‘For The Boys’ and Barbara Hershey for Best Supporting Actress 1996: ‘The Portrait Of A Lady’ star in this funny and touching film from legendary director Garry Marshall.
When the irrepressible C.C. Bloom and the shy and proper Hillary Whitney first meet under the boardwalk, all the 11-year-olds have in common is the need for a best friend. Worlds apart in a lifestyle and location, their friendship ebbs and flows through a lifetime of highs and lows. From the boardwalk in Atlantic City to a beach house on the Pacific, `BEACHES’ will remind you what being a real friend means. Relive every heart-warming moment on Blu-ray High Definition
Like any real friend, no matter what the ups and downs are they can overcome them and remain friends for many decades. In this contemporary remake, Beaches follows the serendipitous meeting of two young girls on the Venice Boardwalk, who, though worlds apart in lifestyle, embark on unexpected and lifelong friendship.
Included on the soundtrack was Bette Midler’s performance of “Wind Beneath My Wings,” which became an immediate smash hit. The song went on to win Grammys for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 1990. It was nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Art Direction for Albert Brenner and Garrett Lewis.
