Now and Then: a must see for best friends
Now and Then is a movie all women
must see. I ’ll try to do this movie justice

Sam (Demi Moore), and Crissy (Rita
Wilson) in adulthood. They are ail re
united by a pact made when they were

They then reminisce back to their
childhood during the summer when
they all were 12 years old. Their goals
that summer consisted of getting
enough money for a tree house, get

have. This movie is playing at Imperial
Cinemas and at Six Forks, so the next
time you do not have anything to do

movie. You will be glad you did!
