The Difference Between Watching the SATC Movie at 21 and 28
I recently found myself living my best grown-up life: folding laundry and watching Sex and the City (the movie) on a day off.
The last time I watched this movie, I was 21 and it had just been released. It was glamorous and a bit ridiculous and it filled the void the TV show had left behind — I loved every minute of it. Watching it again seven years later, I couldn't help but wonder: was it me who'd changed, or the movie? (Obviously it was me.)
Don't get me wrong: I was still engrossed for the full two-and-a-half hours, which is a small miracle these days. But my 28-year-old feels throughout the movie were vastly different to the ones I had at 21 — and I think it all comes down to growing up, falling in love, moving out and building a career of my own. Here's what I noticed the second time around.
