Description

The past is miles back. The future stretches ahead. And laughs, tears and togetherness unfold along the way. Three women sharing a car going west also share a friendship that becomes family in 'Boys on the Side', the acclaimed box-office hit that had audiences everywhere on its side. Whoopi Goldberg, Mary-Louise Parker and Drew Barrymore team in this winning celebration of camaraderie and caring directed by Herbert Ross. One (Goldberg) is a wisecracking club singer, another (Parker) a finicky real-estate agent and finally (Barrymore) the free spirit. Each has secrets to reveal, strengths to impart and vital moments of self-discovery awaiting. Now's their time.
