There is something to be said about the relationship that women have with their friends. It’s almost like having sisters who are connected not by blood, but by friendship and an emotional connection that only gets stronger as the years roll by.
In the 2005 movie, Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants, four friends are separating for the summer. A pair of jeans that fits all four girls will them keep the relationship strong as their lives begin to veer off into different directions.
Lena (Alexis Bledel) is spending the summer with her grandparents in Santorini. Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) is the wannabe documentary filmmaker. Carmen (America Ferrera) has been shipped off to visit her estranged father. Bridget (Blake Lively) tries to keep her focus on the ball at soccer camp, but can’t help but make eyes at one of the coaches.
Based on the book of the same name by Ann Brashares, the movie is basically the standard coming of age story. But, what I like about it is that the lead characters are four very strong empowered young women who are also human and dealing with the same dilemmas that every 17 year old girl deals with.
I recommend it.
