I absolutely LOVED the original Beaches movie! How many of us shed thousands of tears watching this breathtaking movie? Now Lionsgate Entertainment developed another Beaches based on the original, starring the very awesome Idina Menzel. This movie is one that needs to be bought because the remake is really good! I was hesitant at first with the original being that awesome but this movie definitely lives up to the hype of the first movie.
In this contemporary remake, Beaches follows the serendipitous meeting of two young girls on the Venice BeachBoardwalk, who, though worlds apart in lifestyle, embark on an unexpected and lifelong friendship. CC (Idina Menzel) is an aspiring singer trying to make it in Los Angeles when she is discovered by a director who gives her her first big shot. Hillary (Nia Long), the daughter of a prominent civil rights lawyer, struggles to find her own destiny. Their friendship — even with its ups and downs — sustains them for decades. Gabriella Pizzolo, Grace Capeless, Jodi Capeless, Sanai Victoria, and Antonio Cupo costar.
