Practical Magic is a modern day adaptation of the novel written by Alice Hoffman, of two witches following their destiny, despite their wishes and determination to break away from witchcraft that has been practiced in their family for generations. Sandra Bullock (Sally) and Nicole Kidman (Gillian) portray two sisters raised in the magical arts by their aunts, while desperately trying to fit in as normal in a small town. The Owens family has been cursed in love for hundreds of years, causing Sally Owens to swear off men as a child, and her sister Gillian to pursue love at light speed. As the girls become adults, they cast spells and weave magic into their own lives, fulfilling their fates. Sally does find love, despite her attempts to avoid it, but as did Owens women before her, she finds herself eventually alone and swears off conjuring for herself and her daughters, blaming her misfortune on witchcraft. Gillian falls for a man that is more demonic than she deserves, and as a result, enlists the help of her sister to avoid the dark side. This tale of two sisters brings magic into the lives of those who touch them in unexpected ways.
