Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. At the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen makes a decision to toss them. But Lena makes a decision they must all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them.
Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. . .
Take the New York Times bestselling book and pair it with an excellent cast, a screenplay from certainly one of Hollywood’s most respected writers, and gorgeous locales like Vancouver, Baja, and Santorini, and you’ve got The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the teen girl movie of summer 2005 from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures!
