Film Review 35: Sex And The City

I’ve never watched Sex and The City TV series but I think I’ll start watching.

4 fun fearless female friends; Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) live in New York City where everything is a toss between fashion, friends, and feelings.

Carrie is about to move in with Big, her boyfriend of 10 years, and that’s when they finally get enganged. The girls are delirious and quickly get busy preparing for the wedding. However on the rehearsal night, Miranda mindlessly makes a comment which shaken Big’s courage to try for his third marriage. On the wedding day, Big crumbles and jilts Carrie. The girls have to find ways to comfort her while dealing with their own problems; Miranda is devastated when her husband, Steve, reveals his one-time indiscreation. Samantha has about all a woman could wish for; fortune, career and a man who loves her, yet she senses something missing. Charlotte is a kind natured character whose life is perfect, so perfect she is paranoid that things are about to go wrong in her life. As the girls become pillars of support to each other, they are about to be confronted with the heart of the matter.

I’m a huge fan of this movie. Well, there’s nothing paticularly striking about it but somehow it speaks right through me. It’s more than just about sex and the city but it’s a smart and sassy movie about woman’s heart. The story is illogical sometimes and the characters are difficult to comprehend, but deep inside one could understand or relate to them. Carrie’s narration represents a woman’s thoughts which are not often exposed. This movie gets personal. Maybe that’s what I like about it.

Although I’m pretty sure this movie is targetted for women, ladies and gentlemen should be able to enjoy this movie all the same. Of course, the fashion part is more for females, but Sex and The City is definitely worth checking out.
