Practical Magic (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Directed by Griffin Dunne and produced by Denise DiNovi, this 1998 movie stars Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, with Dianne Wiest and Stockard Channing. Based on Alice Hoffman's novel, the story follows the Owens sisters, Sally and Gillian, as they struggle to overcome obstacles to finding true love. They find they are hampered by their hereditary gift for practical magic, having been raised by two witches, their aunts Jet and Frances. Taken in by their aunts after the death of their parents, they grew up in a household that was far from typical. The family curse causes the Owens men to fall in love and suffer an untimely death. Described as a romantic fantasy, the film falls somewhat short of the 1995 book on which it is based.
