Explore Joan Plowright, Enchanted, and more!

Enchanted April 1991.  I've seen this movie a million times.  it's my feel good movie when I want to get inspired and see beauty... It's a Miramax Film and it's my favorite studio.  When the beg credits show the logo, I smile because I know I'm in for a good one.  They make mostly independent films.

The witches of eastwick. Jack Nicholson - Cher - Michelle Pfeiffer - Susan Sharadon

The Witches of Eastwick is a 1987 American comedy-fantasy film starring Jack Nicholson as Daryl Van Horne, alongside Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon as the eponymous witches.

A high-powered Hawaii real estate lawyer (George Clooney) finds his ordered existence shattered when a boating accident leaves his wife in a coma, leaving him in charge of the young daughters (Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller) he barely knows. After finding out his wife was having an affair, he drags the girls along on his hunt for the other man, making for moving revelations along the way.

I found 'The Descendants' to be quite interesting and touching with a nice performance by George Clooney. It is somewhat of a family picture as well with no crazy car chases, gun fights or stuff like that.
