There are certain movies that simply have the Most Glorious Soundtracks Known to Man.
BEAUTIFUL GIRLS is one such movie.
It didn’t break records at the box office, and may be best known for featuring an all-star cast of A-list actors, and if half of them had names starting with A, hey, we’d be riding the alliteration train all the way to Texas. But they don’t. A few of the actors: Uma Thurman, Matt Dillon, Mira Sorvino, Michael Rappaport, Rosie O’Donnell and some little girl named Natalie Portman.
Here’s a great clip from that movie, which you are required by law to fire up on Netflix and such:
And here’s the song by Satchel, which is timeless.
