A group of eight friends from their college years reunite at a funeral to begin what might be considered a walk about of sorts. A time where all of the friends reflect and recenter their souls about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The characters include one person looking for love, one person looking for success (in the running shoe business), one person doing lines of cocaine, one person writing and one person looking for children. They all land in this space in this house and begin to explore where they are in their lives.
The Big Chill is a 1983 American comedy-drama film directed by Lawrence Kasdan, starring Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and JoBeth Williams.
So perhaps, you might reunite with old friends smoke some pot and reflect on the life you lead as a real estate attorney in Atlanta or as a shoe salesman. Whatever it is, be real and be original. Be fresh and be urban and consider what would be if something were a bit different than today. Will you possibly reunite with an old college love and have his baby? Only a funeral or a wedding will help you get to that spot.
