One of my favorite things to do with friends is to watch movies. Two of my favorites that celebrate sisterhood started as books--Little Women and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
I remember watching Little Women (and yes, for me, it has to be the version pictured here with June Allyson, Margaret O'Brien, and Elizabeth Taylor) with my sisters and loving it. I still cry when Beth dies. I still want Laurie to marry Jo.
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants continues to bring me to tears as well with the Carmen storyline, especially when she's watching her father with his new family or when trying to explain to him how his actions make her feel unloved because he's there for his fiance's kids in a way he was never there for her, his biological child. And sarcastic Tivvy befriending a little girl who's very sick. And Lena spending a summer in Greece with her grandparents and falling in love. I may just have to watch it again!
So what are your favorite movies that celebrate sisterhood?
