Here Be Witches: Practical Magic
November 6 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Sisters Gillian (Nicole Kidman) and Sally Owens (Sandra Bullock) the descendants of a long line of witches, whose ancestor was exiled to an island and abandoned by her lover. Her heartbreak puts a curse on the family: any man who falls in love with an Owens woman will die.
The sisters deal with the family curse in very different ways. Sally, a romantic, prefers to isolate herself; whilst the impulsive Gillian goes to L.A. searching for love. A supernatural romance films that combines elements of comedy, romance and horror, Practical Magic didn’t quite land at the time of its release, but has garnered a cult following amongst women, as is worth revisit for its depiction of sisterhood, womanhood and their inherent relationship with witchcraft.
Part of HERE BE WITCHES, an exploration of the witch in film and TV through a season of films, discussions and a brand-new podcast. More info: http://bit.ly/HereBeWitches
