The best female friendships on film

To celebrate the release of new film Miss You Already on September 25th, we've compiled a list of some of our favourite female friendships on film.

1. Aibileen and Minny in The Help

The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project — one that breaks society’s rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humor and hope.

2. Hillary and Cecilia in Beaches

Modern weepie which traces the ups and downs of unlikely friends C.C. (Bette Midler), a brash singer, and Hillary (Barbara Hershey), a conservative rich girl. Meeting as children on a beach in Atlantic City, the two swear lifelong friendship, but don't meet up again until they are in their twenties. C.C. becomes a star, Hillary a lawyer, and they grow apart - but when Hillary contracts a fatal virus, C.C. rushes to her side.

3. Thelma and Louise

Meek housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) joins her friend Louise (Susan Sarandon), an independent waitress, on a short fishing trip. However, their trip becomes a flight from the law when Louise shoots a man and they both decide to flee to Mexico..

4. Annie and Lillian in Bridesmaids

Annie, a maid of honour whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian, and a group of colourful bridesmaids on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honour. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals.

...Not forgetting Jess and Milly in Miss You Already!

The film stars Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette and charts the lives of two best friends, one of whom is hit with the life-changing news that she has breast cancer. Although a heartbreaking subject to work with, the film is warm, funny and really a celebration of the strength of women’s friendships. If you liked any of the films in our list then you'll love it. Although be warned - take tissues!

Enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to the official red carpet premiere of Miss You Already on September 17th, plus £100 each to spend on the new hush autumn collection here.
