For many millennials, 1995 was a very important year, because it brought about the wonderful, wise coming-of-age film Now and Then — not to mention the movie's crazy-good soundtrack. (Who didn't have "Sugar, Sugar" on repeat while daydreaming about a Summer fling with Devon Sawa?) It's been nearly 20 years since we first met the group, but although the story was set in 1991 and flashed back to 1970, the movie's messages still ring true. There's a lot to learn from the life and relationships of Roberta, Samantha, Chrissy, and Teeny, and since actress Thora Birch turns 33 this week, now is the perfect time to look back on the movie. Reliving the good, the bad, and the hilarious, enjoy a quick dose of nostalgia with 18 life lessons from Now and Then.
