Sisters Gillian (Nicole Kidman) and Sally Owens (Sandra Bullock) the descendants of a long line of witches, whose ancestor was exiled to an island and abandoned by her lover. Her heartbreak puts a curse on the family: any man who falls in love with an Owens woman will die. The sisters deal with the family curse in very different ways. Sally, a romantic, prefers to isolate herself; whilst the impulsive Gillian goes to L.A. searching for love. A supernatural romance films that combines elements of comedy, romance and horror, Practical Magic didn’t quite land at the time of its release, but has garnered a cult following amongst women, as is worth revisit for its depiction of sisterhood, womanhood and their inherent relationship with witchcraft.
