Practical Magic (1998). Sally and Gillian Owens have always known they were different. Raised by their aunts after their parents' death, the sisters grew up in a household that was anything but typical--their aunts fed them chocolate cake for breakfast and taught them the uses of practical magic. But the invocation of the Owens' sorcery also carries a price--some call it a curse: the men they fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death. Now adult women with very different personalities, the quiet Sally and the fiery Gillian must use all of their powers to fight the family curse and a swarm of supernatural forces that threatens the lives of all the Owens women.

The time I watched this movie, I think witchcraft was a big genre - with TV shows like "Charmed" and "Sabrina: the Teenage Witch," which I loved watching, too. This was the movie that made us (brother and I) like Nicole Kidman because she just looked very pretty (I personally like women with red hair - because of "Anne of Green Gables"), and she and Sandra Bullock made a good team up in the movie.
Much of the story I already forgot, but I do know that after watching this through VHS, I still watched it the time TV networks showed it on their "Sunday Night Movies." Of course, the most unforgettable parts of the movie were when the Sally (Sandra Bullock) sought the help of their neighbors to perform exorcism, and that scene when Sally saw Gary's eyes - blue and green. Such a sweet moment! :)
