The trip is as much to go to the reunion and see his old friends – none of whom left Knights Ridge after graduation – as it is to get away from his current life, at which he is at a crossroads both personally and professionally. He is just eking out a living with his piano playing gigs, and as such he is thinking about taking a sales job. He’s also not sure if he’s ready to marry his long time girlfriend, lawyer Tracy Stover. Most of Willie’s Knights Ridge blue collar friends’ best days were in high school, they still having that “trophy” mentality of girlfriends and wives. Only Michael “Mo” Morris is happily married with a family. Paul Kirkwood, whose room is plastered with magazine pictures of models, wants his waitress ex-girlfriend Jan back only because he knows now that he can’t have her. And Tommy “Birdman” Rowland, who was the big man in high school, is trying to end his affair with his now married high school girlfriend, Darian Smalls. Despite knowing about Darian, Tommy’s current girlfriend, Sharon Cassidy, stands by her man through bad and worse. A cousin of their bar owning friend Stanley “Stinky” Womack, the beautiful Andera who is visiting from Chicago, may provide the voice of reason for this group of friends in dealing with their women problems. Some reason is what Willie may need in trying to figure out why he is attracted to Marty, his father’s thirteen year old neighbor, especially as Willie learns that Tracy has decided to join him for the reunion.
Plot: During a snowy winter in the small fictional town of Knight’s Ridge, Massachusetts, a group of lifelong buddies hang out, drink and struggle to connect with the women who affect their decisions, dreams and desires.

Beautiful Girls… beautiful movie…
Easily one of the most overlooked movies considering how good it is. There are several ensemble movies out there, but this movie is definitely one of the best ones.
The key word in ensemble cast is obviously “cast”. And this movie has a stellar cast. Timothy Hutton, as Willy, is perfectly cast. Yes, this is an ensemble movie, but it sort of hovers around his character and he carries the movie so well. And to play off him, Natalie Portman is tremendous in this movie. Despite being the youngest cast member, she outacts most of the adults in this movie. Her chemistry with Timothy Hutton is amazing.
The other cast members, including Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Rappaport, Uma Thurman, and Matt Dillon are also really good in their respective roles. Rosie O’Donnell delivers a hilarious monologue about the differences between men and women and it should not be missed.
The story is relatively simple… a man going back home to attend his 10 year reunion. But because of the complex characters and their various storys, it becomes much more than just a high school reunion. Its a story about a man finding himself. Its a story about a young girl getting a taste of what love might be, despite it being in an unlikely person. Its a story of a man who has to grow up and let go of the long gone high school glory years. Its a story about relationships, between friends, family and couples. All these tales are interwoven into a heartwarming story.
This movie ranks as one of my all time favorite movies.
Channel surfing on a snowy day last winter, stumbled on this movie with an intriguing name: ‘Beautiful Girls.’ Found a terrific movie I had somehow missed when it came out. An incredible cast, great characters, sweet, funny, engaging, and good music to boot. I recently saved it on Tivo, and one of its many charms is that like a book you love, you can pick it up at any spot in the story and be engaged for 5-10-30 minutes or an hour, put it down, and pick it up again.
I keep telling my friends to rent it, but I think they are put off by the title they expect some movie with Mira Sorvino, Uma Thurman, Natalie Portman, Lauren Holly, and Annabeth Gish to be something this movie isn’t an exploitative movie about ‘beautiful girls’ when it is in fact a charming movie about how people move through life yet retain a sense of who they are if they can remember where they came from.
