The Big Chill: 30 Years Later

Stars JoBeth Williams, Tom Berenger, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, Glenn Close and Kevin Kline, as well as producer Marcia Nasatir and Kasdan and shared stories of making the drama about a group of once-close college friends who reunite for a weekend of soul searching — and soul music — after their college buddy Alex commits suicide.

It was an entertaining film, if only to see Kevin Kline in his running shorts.

No William Hurt?

Oops, guess I'm chopped liver squared. ..

Yes Kline looked good in those short shorts...

It wasn't that good of a film. It was seminal for its star power and for its witty dialogue, but that was about it.

Oh: and that was really a great house.

Oh my god, that's my fave movie of all to hate! So much hateful behavior. The characters were hideous.

Mary Kay Place ruined her looks with that awful plastic surgery!

Did Alex kill himself because he was a homosexual?

I love JoBeth Williams. I never saw "The Big Chikll," but just that warm face and demeanor that held "Poltergeist" together.

Laurence Kasdan's screenplay makes clear the joke- that is that the characters themselves knew they now are shallow, materialistic, upwardly mobile, affluent whiners and realize that their worst fears are true- their college causes WERE just a fashion and, most damning, deep down inside, they wouldn't have it any other way.

Even Alex sold-out which is made clear by Chloe when she tells Nick that Alex said that "maybe he should have taken that Rutledge Fellowship" which, presumably, Rutledge was a wealthy corporation seeking to co-opt Alex by hiring him.

I love this often misunderstood film. To me it's like a window into a world that I never did belong to but Kasdan puts it all out there for me to see.

where's william hurt?

I don't understand what is so terrible about these characters and never have.

Oh, yes. I remember it.

One of your nominations, wasn't it, G? Linda Hunt won that year, playing a man. Ironic, wasn't it? And she's so good.
