ET To Bend It Like Beckham: These Hollywood Movies Truly Describe The Essence Of Friendship

Friendship has been cookie-cutterized on-screen for so long, that sometimes – often times – we feel that all of that can’t possibly be true. But every now and then a very true friendship comes to fore: it’s the ride or die friendship, it’s the cant-let-a-guy-come-between-us friendship, it’s the unlikely friendship between two people, it’s the melancholic but all too real friendship with a lover gone by, it’s the friendship that has a meddler, it’s the friendship that even though has specks of romance, it never truly loses its intrinsic essence, and lastly it’s the friendship that rests in the vulnerability of a time you both cherished deeply. 

These friendships are real, raw, and more blissful than any possible relationship you can ever have. So savour them, protect them, bask in the glory of them.
