It's been 23 years since the cult classic film Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion first blessed the world in 1997, but it remains as relevant a tale of friendship and self-acceptance as it did back then.
The movie tells the story of best friends Romy (Mira Sorvino) and Michele (Lisa Kudrow), who decide to leave their Los Angeles lives to head home to Tucson for their 10-year high school reunion.

Naturally, their lies are discovered. But with the help of a couple of satin mini-dresses, they discover what really matters – accepting and celebrating themselves.
