The four unique protagonists in HBO’s “Sex and the City” didn’t just open their lives to us. They represented an entire generation of women whom we turned to for comfort, advice, and entertainment.
Some part of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte exists in each of us and, when the show ended, we said goodbye to a small part of our selves.
If you, like I, played the last episode thinking to yourself, “What am I going to do without Carrie?”, then you won’t have to wait much longer.
She and her pals will be back in a feature-length film, and you can fall in love with the “bigger than ‘Big’” show all over again when it is released in theaters in late May!
The newly released trailer for the film hints at important questions that will be answered:
— Can Carrie trade in her single life and settle down with “Big” (we learn his full name too: John James Preston)?
— Will Samantha get bored of dreamy and youthful “Smith”?
— Can Miranda balance her career and personal life?
— Is Charlotte able to be a suitable Jewish wife?
…and perhaps most importantly, how will they stick together, help each other, and pick each other up when they fall?
The trailer accurately foretells how “some things end, some things begin, and some thing never change.” Just as it had in seasons past, I know the film will do one thing for certain: show us how careful guidance by close friends can get you through the toughest of times.
All the main actors are back for the movie, but I am hoping a few old flames will be brought into the mix this time around. John Corbett (Aidan), James Remar (Richard), Blair Underwood (Robert), and Kyle MacLachlan (Trey) took previous turns as significant others on the show. I have a personal affection for James Remar, whom I dated one summer in Hawaii, and I still regard him as one of the sexiest men alive. A few cameos from these hot older men would make this movie even more satisfying.
While my real-life “Sex and the City” affair is over, my obsession for the show is far from it. You’ll have to hold your breath as best as you can until May 23rd. Then, dust off those Manolo Blahniks and get to the theater as fast as possible.
