This one might be a little bit to magic for the category, but I think it fits and I basically rule here. ‘Practical Magic’ is the story of two sisters Sally and Gillian Owens. They grow up in a cursed family, where the men tend to die and so does their father and they’re raised by their aunts. Because of what has happened to their family Sally is terrified of love, while Gillian loves being in love and falls for a new man every day. Being witches and feeling sad for Sally, who seems lonely the aunts use magic to get Sally a man. They get two children, but then the curse hits and the dear hubby dies. Meanwhile, Gillian has fallen in love with a new man, Jimmy, who unfortunately has a violent side. They accidentally kill him but since Gillian insist that she loves him, they decide to bring him back with magic. What comes back, however, is far darker that either of them ad expected.
This was one of my favorite movies growing and made me fall in love with both Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and magic. I think a lot girl have fantasied about being a witch and when I had those dream I found this film. The different relations in te family is what really makes this for me. There three sets of sisters and they all have the same kind of dynamic and really like seeing them all together. The magic is quite understated, with the exception of bringing someone back to life and I like the use of magic. I don’t know who would love this film as much as I do, other than me. For me it’s a film I watch whenever I want to coy it up and watch something I like and I like this. Why you should like it, I dont’ know. Watch it and judge for yourself.
