of the Traveling Pants Contest
“I’ve always liked the idea that clothing can hold
emotions and memories or connections to other people,
so it wasn’t a stretch to imagine a pair of jeans could
be a physical repository for a living friendship.”
- Ann Brashares
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants brings to the screen Ann
Brashares’ best-selling novel about one very special summer
in the lives of four lifelong friends.
Introduced as babies who were born to mothers who met in a prenatal
aerobics class, the four grew up together and developed an enduring
bond despite their distinctly different emerging personalities.
Now, after years of sharing every triumph and loss, every wild
idea and secret fear with the laughter and love of true friends,
these four young women couldn’t be closer… except
that they’re about to be separated as their lives take
them in different directions for the first time.
Introspective and occasionally volatile Carmen (AMERICA FERRERA)
is looking forward to spending quality time with her out-of-state
dad, whom she hasn’t seen much since he divorced her mother
years ago; super-confident star athlete Bridget (BLAKE LIVELY)
is heading for a soccer camp in Mexico; soft-spoken Lena (ALEXIS
BLEDEL), a gifted artist as beautiful as her drawings, is set
to discover her heritage – and an unexpected romance –
on a trip to her grandparents’ home in Greece; and sharp-witted
rebel Tibby (AMBER TAMBLYN) will reluctantly remain in town,
stocking shelves at the local discount store while working on
her pet project, a video “suckumentary” to expose
what she sees as the banality of everyday life.
On a shopping trip together the day before their paths diverge,
the friends find a pair of thrift-shop jeans that amazingly
fits and flatters each one of them perfectly, even though they
are four young women of very different shapes and sizes.
It seems these pants are meant for sharing and that gives Carmen,
Bridget, Lena and Tibby a wonderful idea. They decide
to use the pants as a way of keeping in touch during the months
ahead, each one wearing them for a week to see what luck they
bring before mailing them on to the next.
In this unique way, though miles apart, the four still experience
the challenges and surprises of life as they always have –
together – in a summer they’ll never forget.
