KinoFresher - Now and Then
• KinoFresher - Now and then
Recently we talked about the movie "big disappointment" Lawrence Kasdan - painting, which secretly mourned the best of times. Today let's talk about the movie, which many call the female version of the movie "Stand by Me" - the drama "Now and Then" (Now and Then) Lesli Linka Gletter - the director from among the directors of the cult TV series "Mad Men."
Events this 1995 take place in the city of Shelby, Indiana, although filmed in Savannah, Georgia, - the southern city, not once mentioned in the cult novel by Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind", which in itself sets a certain mood.
Heroines - Four friends, childhood friends, but I have not seen. Two of them left town and became famous: one - a famous actress, the second - a writer. The other two remained in a quiet provincial town, and that the upcoming birth of a child of one of them and was the occasion for others to come together. Women recall their shared childhood, fears, emotions, first love ...
In general, it is in fact purely plot movie "Now and Then" (sometimes referred to as "from time to time") is not far from "Stand By Me" by Rob Reiner. Four inseparable friends, one of them died mother, other family left the father's parents are not engaged third, fourth very naive.
Again there is a motive of fear - if the "Stay with me" guys were afraid to find a mysterious corpse, they went in search of, the "Now and Then" girls want to learn the terrible secret of the deceased once a boy whose spirit they tried to call the cemetery at night. Decoupling really predictable and somewhat naive, but look, perhaps, it will be interesting to those who like to remember my childhood, because one way or another story, shown in the screen echoes the feelings of each spectator. And "now and then", oddly enough, like "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer."
In the film, you can see various famous actresses - from Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith, who had in 1995 to make plastic face up Christina Ricci (played opposite Devon Sawa, who along with her appeared in "Casper"), the Torah Birch (she played the daughter of Kevin Spacey's character in "American beauty," Sam Mendes) and Rosie O'Donnell. In small roles appear small Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Brendan Fraser and Hank Azaria. It is interesting to see what other girls have now become. Unfortunately, one of the actresses, Ashley Aston Moore, recently passed away ...
In the soundtrack, as well as in the "big brother" - the movie "Stand by Me" - very often hits of days gone by. In general, "now and then" leaves a good impression and is suitable for an evening show at the weekend.
