'Discover a movie which hits home about love, friendship, dreams and life. A movie that you'll be talking about long afterwards. Experience something special, something romantic, something honest.'--Reads the tagline from 'Mystic Pizza'.
This month we're taking a trip back to the 80's. 1988 to be exact, with the movie 'Mystic Pizza'. The film, starring Annabeth Gish, Lili Taylor, and an introduction of the actress who would come to be known as "America's sweetheart": Julia Roberts, quietly captured a place in the heart of a generation with its tender, funny, and at times, heartbreaking coming-of-age tale.
On this journey we get to know two sisters, Kat and Daisy along with Jojo as they navigate their way through the trials and triumphs of friendship, first love, heartbreak and growing up...
While the residents of their small Connecticut town, Mystic, are becoming increasingly mystified by the irresistible pizza served up at the parlor where the three girls work, they discover that finding out who they are can be just as bewildering.
Many of us remember seeing this movie for the first time.
Break out the aqua net. Don your best neon. And bring your appetite. We're heading back to Mystic for "A slice of Heaven."
How will YOU mystify? With lots of mozzarella and roasted vegetables, Maybe even fruit. Or something unexpected, like f*%king lobster. Don't be afraid to get creative. Or stay true to a classic favorite. The possibilities are endless.

October Flick: Mystic Pizza
Monday, October 4, 2010 - Mystic Pizza
I'm a Mom, first and foremost, to a beautiful boy named Barrett. And wife to my best friend, Daph. I'm a Boston girl, born and raised. When life gives me lemons, I make lemon cookies. I'm passionate about cooking. I believe that food should not only nourish and taste good, but also inspire and be adventurous. As should life! I live for love, that feeling you get when you know you're truly alive and total world domination. Rest assured, I only intend to spread peace... and pieces of cake.
