I'm sure we all have a few of these!
If not a person, it could also be a time in your life.
Beaches: Reminds me of my childhood best friend every time we watch it because she was the one who introduced me to it and we used to quote it to each other all the time. Also, just like Cece and Hillary we've had times when we grew apart but we keep getting drawn back.
Plus just like those two we're really about as alike as night and day. There was a time when we'd even write letters back and forth.
Practical Magic: brings me back to my college years, when I first saw it and was curious about Wicca, and actually reminds me of a few different people in my life. I swear I think the aunts (played by Dianne Weist and Stockard Channing) are like myself and my bff, with me being more like Dianne Weist's character. Gillian (Nicole Kidman's character) reminds me of one of the only friends from college still in our lives. Not quite as wild as Gilly but boy she has had a stream of bad luck with men.
"Bad Moon Rising" by CCR also brings to mind my bff because she does have some mysterious ways about her. Another friend of hers called it her song and I can see why.
