Film: Now And Then

A 1995 film about four girls growing up in Shelby, Indiana. The bulk of the story takes place in a flashback to when the girls were 12 and is told from a single point of view.

Essentially a Gender-flipped version of the 1986 classic Stand by Me. Definitely not to be confused with the anime Now and Then, Here and There.

The film includes the main characters both as 12-year-olds and as adults. Casting different actors.
  • Samantha Albertson. In youth played by Gaby Hoffmann, in adulthood by Demi Moore.
  • Chrissy De Witt. In youth played by Ashleigh Aston Moore, in adulthood by Rita Wilson.
  • Roberta Martin. In youth played by Christina Ricci, in adulthood by Rosie ODonnell
  • Tina "Teeny" Tercell. In youth played by Thora Birch, in adulthood by Melanie Griffith.

Written by I. Marlene King, who later developed another, very different story about four female friends.
