BMEotD #162  Now and Then (1995)

This is truly one of my favorite coming-of-age stories.  It sweetly intertwines friendship and individuality. I first heard about this film while watching Rosie O'Donnell’s HBO stand-up special where she proceeded to mock co-star Melanie Griffith’s potty mouth. I was super excited to find out that Gaby Hoffmann, Christina Ricci, and Thora Birch were all in this film. I had enjoyed their previous movies. Some examples are Sleepless in Seattle (co-starring O'Donnell), The Addams Family,  and Paradise…the latter of which also stars Griffith.  

This film will make you laugh and cry and say OMG Devon Sawa was so adorable, where the F did he go?
