Very Sad memories for me ???

This film was so hard for me to watch as my wife died from cardiomyopathy aged just 28 in 1991, we had/have 2 daughters who were 14mths and 3 yrs old when my wife died. The saddest part was that in late 1990 after my wife had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy she watched on TV the film Beaches, (unknown to me), on her own in our bedroom and I was outside gardening at that time. I came in to see her later and I could tell she had been crying, when I asked why she had been crying she burst into tears saying she would never see our 2 girls grow up, i said "don't be silly" and gave her a big cuddle. At that time I thought that neither of us knew what her prognosis would be but she did because of the Beaches film but didn't tell me. A few days later she said that she had watched a film called Beaches and just said it was quite sad but gave me no details of the film. After my wife died I was devastated and life was very tough for many years, I'm now 63 and our daughters are 30 and 32, both now older than their mum was when she died and its so sad that they never knew her. They are both very happy today. I met someone in 2006 and we have been living together happily since. Just by chance in about 2014 my partner was going through Netflix and the film Beaches came up, because neither of us had seen it i said lets watch it as my late wife had seen this film and had said that it was sad. I quickly realised why she had said back in 1990 why she wouldn't see our girls grow up and I did cry watching it and thought of my late wife at 27 yrs old knowing that there was no cure and she knew that she wouldn't see her girls grow up ?? I know this isnt much of a review but it brought back so many sad memories and how brave my wife was for not telling me ?. Please watch the film its worth watching

Let's get this out of the way first. I'm a guy...

...and I think the movie is a treat. Yes, it has schmaltzy moments and it has catty moments, but what melodrama doesn't? It's been a tried-and-true film genre since the 1940's, and shows no signs of fading away yet. But I get sick and tired of society turning a cynical eye on sentiment or love or sensitivity in a film, and dismissing it as a chick flick. (40 years ago, the same type of film was dismissed as a 'woman's picture.' Obviously we haven't come a long way, baby.) What's the point of this tirade? The centerpiece of 'Beaches' is a friendship. Between two women. But it could be between a man and a woman; it could even be between two men, though they probably wouldn't have fought over the same things. But we all possess the same emotions: insecurity, ambition, bitterness when things are bad, joy when things are great. This isn't just reserved for the fairer sex. Bette Midler essays what is close to an autobiographical role: a singer bordering on the multiple-talent bandwagon. We already know Bette can be funny, but when she gets to emote she often sounds raw and untrained- something which makes her acting style seem all the more natural. Barbara Hershey compliments her perfectly as a beautiful socialite-turned-civil-rights-attorney whose face appears to be her fortune, but is smart, humble, and not at all self-absorbed. The film soars highest when the two friends are brought together by life circumstances: celebrating holidays in a cold apartment; playing cards while doing the laundry; conversations thru letters; a beautiful pregnancy montage framed around the song "Baby Mine;" a tragedy in the film's 11th hour featuring Midler cooing a very melancholy "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today." Guaranteed tears in your eyes. And this is all BEFORE the musical finale of "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Midler & Hershey Were Great Together

Was not very certain if I really wanted to view this film, some times Midler can be way out in left field. However, in this film Bette Midler, (CC Bloom),"That Old Feeling",'97 plays a very self-centered person who will stop at nothing to get what she wants and if it is a career on the stage, just forget about love or a husband and children. Barbara Hershey,(Hillary),"Riding the Bullet",'04, is a childhood friend of CC Bloom and in some ways they help each other, even though they are complete opposites. There is plenty of comedy, lots of fighting, and more drama than you can handle. Midler sings outstanding songs we all know by heart and it is a very entertaining film, but very very SAD!
