First time I saw Beaches was during the premiere on Lifetime in January 2017 , one of the reasons why remakes are made is to introduce a new generation to a popular film with a new spin on it.
Idina Menzel's rendition of Bette Midler's Wind Beneath My Wings was amazing and sung so beautifully, the film retells the story of a friendship between two women from different backgrounds that spans from childhood to adulthood.
Nia Long's portrayal of Hillary Whitney was good, like Barbra Hershey in the original film her character goes through many changes beginning with befriending CC Bloom who wants to be a star to becoming a lawyer, wife and then eventually a single mother is handled well.
Fellow cast members Gabriella Pizzolo, Grace Capeless, Antonio Cupo, Colin Lawrence, Sanai Victoria , Jodi Capeless and Donny Lucas rounded out the cast perfectly.
I give this film a 6.3/ 10
