#neverforget Movie Edition: 'Now And Then'
This was originally published on September 30th, 2015. Here it is again to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary!
For this week's episode of #neverforget, we look back through every movie ever made to select a truly iconic piece of cinema that should remain in your memory forever. The masterwork we've chosen is a combination of sisterhood, mystery, our fave teen actresses and a banging soundtrack that only a 90s-does-60s production could achieve.
We're talking about Now and Then, the film that fulfilled all our adolescent dreams of seances, tree houses and BFFs. From peak Thora Birch and Christina Ricci to a telephone signalling system and a kind old hobo, Now and Then really ticked all the boxes.
Please join us in this small tribute to the movie that gave us so much...
Squad goals, obviously.
The best tomboy eva who taught us how to tape our boobs down if we ever needed to (note: didn't).
Big mistake. Huge.
When they casually rode their bikes a few towns over to investigate a murder.
When we realised that Chrissy was the cutest.
This song, "Wormer alert!", Chrissy being lazy/loveable and Scott turning the charm on.
Actual angel Thora Birch as Teeny the teen we all wanted to be.
When they totally owned the Womers in a stealing-clothes-while-swimming scene rivalled only by The Parent Trap.
When they stopped for a ciggie and some life lessons with Brendon Fraser.
When Roberta and Scott finally break the sexual tension (a moment that's enhanced by the fact that Scott is Casper!).
When we first learned about the accurate insights you could glean from a Cosmo quiz.
When Crazy Pete ends up being the biggest ledge in town.
When Crissy's mum does not know what she's talking about.
And Teeny does.
It was super wise Sam who taught us the most tho.
All for one and one for all.
