In the movies world, both the Sex and the City series and movies are like in the shoes world Jimmy Choo Shoes, or like in the universe of jewelries Tiffany’s. That means in our universe the dream universe. With the 4 best friends of the movie- Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte- we feel like our lives is changing, our fantasies get wings and all of a sudden, everything seems easier, pinker, more beautiful. So I ask myself: is this movie a successful one? And I will answer with a proper and sincere YES!
Each woman presented in the movie represents a strongly defined character, but I think that in each one of us there is a little of all of them. Do you understand me? I mean, Carrie for example is that type of girl, who would give anything for a true love, which makes you feel in the heaven. Her girly attitude is the typical attitude every girl has in some proportion and the dream of meeting the soul mate is surely the dream of all of us. Then there is Charlotte, who is dreaming of a perfect family with the priceless, loving husband and some adorable kids. At some point of our lives, we will all end up wanting the same things as Charlotte does!
Samantha, the woman who knows what is fun and who likes to break the rules, is that crazy part of us which is afraid of compromising or getting involved into something serious, which we know we would handle only with a lot of work. This is natural and is almost a necessary part of our character. Miranda gives us the image of a hard-working and ambitious woman, who wants to succeed maximally both in her career and her family life, without neglecting none of them. She is the modern woman, who wants to show to the entire world that you can have it all. And don’t we all want to show the same thing to every one?
As a conclusion, I would say that the fact that the movie represents more types of characters, which can also lead to one and complex character helped to the big success of this movie. It’s almost a paradox that there are four characters, yet it’s one; and that they are experiencing a dream world, which is also the real world if we take time to notice this. Don’t you think the same way?
