For the First Time on Blu-ray, Get This Classic Comedic Drama
Starring Better Midler and Barbara Hershey!
Just Debuted on Blu-ray November 6, 2012
With New Digital Restoration
I recently received Beaches on Blu-Ray for review and it instantly brought back so many memories and emotions. I had not seen this movie in years and yet so many scenes came flooding back. This movie is so filled with raw emotion about friendship between two women starting in childhood and lasting through the years even though there are struggles, bumps and fighting along the way. The tear jerker end makes this a true chick flick for sure and will resonate with you for a lifetime as I can attest to.
A privileged rich debutante and a cynical struggling entertainer share a turbulent, but strong childhood friendship over the years.
