:: Forever Friends October 28, 2007

Posted by Minci 先生 in Everyday Life.

Friends come and go but there’s always one you’re stuck with for life.

Based on a novel by Iris Rainer Dart, Beaches traces the 30-year oil-and-water friendship between free-spirited Bronx Jew CC Bloom (Bette Midler) and uptight San Francisco WASP Hillary Essex (Barbara Hershey). The two meet as children in Atlantic City (played by Mayim Bialik and Marcie Leeds) and are reunited in the 1960s, when CC is a struggling singer and Hillary is trying to break free from her staid upbringing by becoming an activist. The two ladies room together, then fall out when both are attracted to off-Broadway producer John Pierce (John Heard). CC wins John, but she quickly outgrows him as she matriculates into a bawdy performer. The recently patched-up friendship between CC and Hillary is torn asunder again when Hillary and her new husband express distaste for CC’s performing style. Comes the 1970s, and CC and Hillary are reunited after shedding their respective spouses. Broke again, they once more become Manhattan roommates. Their bond strengthens, but there is tragedy in store for the duo.

I’ve only known Bette Midler from her song ‘From the distance’. I never knew she could act and boy she was funny.

I’ve always feared the lost of friendship. Especially those that matters a lot. Friends who define you for who you are. I admit there were a few ties I had to sever for they were ‘contaminated’ but I’m saddened by those which were not of my own doing. Not of their own doing either but of other people.

I’ve heard that even the best of friends can grow apart. I hope mine will stay till death do us part. 😉

‘Glory of Love’ by Bette Midler
You’ve got to give a little, take a little
And let your poor heart break a little
That’s the story of,
That’s the glory of love

You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little
Until the clouds roll by a little
That’s the story of,
That’s the glory of love

– Beaches OST-
