Two very different young girls meet on a beach in a 1950s American resort. CC Bloom (Bette Midler) is a brash, confident minx determined to make it in the glitzy world of show business. Hillary (Barbara Hershey) is a wealthy, restrained and privileged WASP, who seems destined for a life as a trophy wife. Against all odds, their friendship survives, through broken marriages, diverging careers and the trials of life.
Hilarious, moving and deeply satisfying, and boasting great performances by Hershey and Midler, Beaches is an unmissable film about what true friendship really means.
