This review is from: Beaches [DVD]  (DVD)Its said that a successful film is one which makes the audience care about the characters. By heck Beaches does it with room to spare.
I first saw this film when i was about 8 years old, 12 years ago, now there's a thought! With maturity and greater understanding i now appreciate Beaches more. As can be taken from the other reviews the film centers around two childhood friends who grow up together as penpals and when they need each other in adult life not even continents could keep them apart. The relationship between the two is so well developed and this is what makes the ending so unbearably sad and tear jerking. And what review would be complete without the fantastic song Wind Beneath my Wings getting a mention, perfectly placed within the film and by itself a good enough reason to buy the Beaches soundtrack.
Its a tale of a friendship that many should aspire to achieve and its message of being there for one another from good times and bad, is one that can appeal to everyone.
Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended to everyone.
