All Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie Events are 21+ Only
Longtime friends Samantha (Demi Moore), Roberta (Rosie O’Donnell), Chrissy (Rita Wilson), and Tina (Melanie Griffith) have each pursued very different paths since growing up together in tiny Shelby, Indiana. But a hometown reunion sends the four friends on a trip down memory lane to the life-changing summer of 1970, when Samantha (Gaby Hoffmann) channeled her angst about her parents divorce into conjuring the spirit of a dead boy, while tomboy Roberta (Christina Ricci) struggled to reconcile her tomboy persona with her burgeoning womanhood. Through seances, trips to the local swimming hole, and run-ins with the loathsome Wormer brothers, the girls always have each other’s backs.
Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie O’Donnell, Thora Birch, Melanie Griffith
