Movie — The Big Chill

“The Big Chill” (1983)

The Big Chill is a 1983 American comedy-drama film directed by Lawrence Kasdan, starring Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and JoBeth Williams. The plot focuses on a group of baby boomer college friends who reunite after 15 years when one of their old comrades, Alex, commits suicide without warning. (From Wikipedia.com)

This is one of my favorite movies. 

I don’t remember seeing the movie when it came out in 1983. Must of seen it on cable at home. 

Not sure why I like it so much? The friendships in the movie? Or maybe the music?

Whatever the reason, I do like this movie. 

Maybe it’s the soundtrack, it did have some great songs. 

Marvin Gaye (1968): “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”

The Temptations (1965): “My Girl”

The Young Rascals (1966): “Good Lovin'”
