The movie indicates that the scene, where Tibby and Bailey are looking up at the stars and when Lena and Kostas are out on the boat, are around the same time. But Maryland and Greece are in very different time zones, eight hours apart. However, it could be 10-11 at night in one place and 4-5 in the morning in the other place, so it would be dark in both places. See more »

Um... I just... I wan - .
[At his house, Al walks from the dining room where Lydia and the kids eat dinner, to a small den and speaks to Carmen at a whisper]
I-It's alright. You don't - you don't have to apologize, sweetheart. You were... upset, I know.
Um... no dad. You don't know. That's just it, you've never known. Because I've never been able to tell you.
T-Tell me what?

I saw this film in Indianapolis in early May before the official theatrical release. I am one of the judges for the Heartland Film Festival that screens films for their Truly Moving Picture Award. A Truly Moving Picture "...explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life." Heartland gave that award to this film.
The sisterhood consists of four teenage girls. And each of the girls are special. They are each intelligent and introspective. And they take the important things in their lives in a mature, serious way. These important things include their personal lives, their personal development, their families, and the history of their families.
And the sisterhood is special too. Not because of the "trick" of the one pair of pants fitting four physically different girls, but because the girls care for each other and supply support for each other in a mature way that takes most of us decades to learn. They are there for each other for no ulterior motive. They help each other because there is a goodness and wisdom and healthiness in helping another human being.
The four girls are equals in this movie. Not only are they equal in terms of their importance to each other, but also in time in front of the camera. This is not a star vehicle for one of these young actresses. Their relationship is the star of this movie.
FYI - There is a Truly Moving Picture web site where there is a listing of past winners going back 70 years.
