Eight Awesome Movie Sisters

Written by: Carla De Guzman/Tuesday, Sep 20, 2016 01:57 PM

Whether you want to admit it or not, there’s a special bond between you and your sister that people may not quite get. She’s never afraid to call you out when you’re not being yourself and is the first person to support you when Mom and Dad just don’t understand. Your sister is a part of your life, and yes, it’s not always fun and rainbows (There may have been a bit of hair pulling involved!), but we know they will always have our back. 

We’re celebrating the awesome bond between sisters all month long here at the Lifestyle Network, and we thought you might want to join in! These film sisters give us ultimate #SisterGoals, and might be a great marathon with your ate!

Sally and Gillian Owens - Practical Magic

Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman look the least like each other, but their bond as a pair of witchy sisters made this movie one of my favorites as a child. They were apart for some time, and very different people, but when Sally runs into some trouble, Gillian drops everything to help her. I love that they instantly knew when the other is calling. And of course, midnight maragaritas!

Kat and Bianca Stratford - Ten Things I Hate About You

Every millenial’s favorite teen movie had Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik starring as Kat and Bianca, two sisters who were always at each others throats for many reasons. The first being that Bianca wasn’t allowed to date until Kat (man-hating shrew!) did. But we didn’t exactly see Kat protest too much when she agreed to go to a party with Patrick Verona (hello Heath Ledger!) so Bianca could go. 

Hallie Parker and Annie James - The Parent Trap

You know what’s even better than a sister? A twin, especially one you never realized you had. Lindsay Lohan first captured everyone’s attention as the twins that could not be more different—until they switched places to fool their parents. It’s a brilliant plan, and you have to admit that you tried to do Annie and Martin’s handshake when you were a kid!

Elinor and Marianne Dashwood - Sense and Sensibility

In Ang Lee’s 1995 version, Marianne (Kate Winslet) throws her sense straight out the window by falling for Mr. Willoughby while brushing off the kindess of much more suitable Colonel Brandon (Alan Rickman). Meanwhile, Elinor (Emma Thompson) tries to keep her sensibility intact by hiding her feelings for Edward Ferrars (Hugh Grant). The sisters are opposites of each other, but they stood by each other, even when circumstances were dire. 

Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia Bennet - Pride and Prejudice

Of course we couldn’t mention a sister list without mentioning Jane Austen’s most diverse set of sisters. Joe Wright’s beautifully shot 2005 movie is a favorite, because it shows the little moments between the Bennet sisters, like arguing over dresses, giggling over boys and making inside jokes about unwelcome houseguests! The sisters are wonderfully played by Rosamund Pike, Keira Knightley, Talulah Riley, Carey Mulligan and Jenna Malone. 

Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth March - Little Women

Everyone probably remembers reading Little Women as a little girl (and screaming about why Jo said no to Laurie) or watching the 1994 movie with Winona Ryder and Christian Bale in those roles. Love story aside, the world remembers the closeness of the sisters thorugh sickness and war, love and happy endings. 

Katniss and Primrose Everdeen - The Hunger Games

We talk about doing everything for our sisters, but Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) one-upped us all by volunteering as tribute for the Hunger Games. The whole series was fuelled by Katniss' determination to keep Prim alive. If that’s not sisterly love, then I don’t know what is!

Elsa and Anna - Frozen

Come on, we wouldn’t just….let it go. Get it? But seriously, what puts this Disney flick on our list is the relationship between Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell). Elsa tries to pull away from her sister after hurting her as a child, but Anna spends most of the movie fighting for Elsa to come home. Not because she was the queen, but because she loved her. Nope, I’m not crying. You are.
