I was named after this movie, and up until tonight, I hadn’t yet watched it. Now as I sit here writing this post, my eyes are sore and I am sniffling worse than the sniffles from a cold. Now I understand why my Momma named me after Shelby from the movie.
This is the perfect movie for a woman in the many stages of her life. When I was younger, I saw it and didn’t understand what it was about (hence why I don’t count that time). This time around, I was seeing it from the “daughter to mother” view. I imagine, and have been told, that decades from now this movie will mean something totally different to me then. For now, I don’t think I will be able to watch it again for a long time. However, it was good to finally see the movie that has played a part in my life ever since my mother named me. (Everyone who lived in the 80’s that I have met asks if I was named after this movie)
I recommend this movie to any woman.
