TCP - It's A Greek Thing




The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants if my movie pick for this week Tuesday Couch Potatoes edition which is all about Greek Thing movies. There was one setting of this movie that done in Greece. One character of the movie was Lena Kalligaris (Alexis Bledel) was in Greece one day. You can read her part of the movie below. I found this review online from reliable movie source. It's the jeans that bring thier friendshp together and stronger even if they are not together all the time. So, you should watch it out if you get the chance.


One day in Greece, Lena is sitting at the dock, drawing when she accidentally falls in the water, and the leg of the Pants gets caught on something. A young man swims over and sets her free, later introducing himself as Kostas Dounas, a Greek-American like her. Lena learns from her grandparents that her family and Kostas' family are sworn enemies stemming from an old family feud. Despite this, Kostas continues to pursue Lena, and the two develop feelings for each other. At first, Lena is afraid to let herself love Kostas, but eventually begins to open up, sharing rides on his motorbike through the town and going out in Kostas' grandfather's boat at midnight, to which her grandparents are oblivious.

The climax of the relationship comes one Saturday night close to the end of the summer, right before Kostas is about to leave town to return to Athens University. Kostas and Lena attend a party, and while they are dancing, Kostas tells Lena that he loves her. Before Lena can answer, Lena's family barges in, angrily pulling Lena away. Lena later confronts her grandfather and asks to go see Kostas before he leaves, to which her grandfather agrees. Lena goes to the dock and calls out to Kostas, who gets off the ferry. Kostas and Lena share a passionate kiss, and Lena confesses her love for him.

Plot
Four teenage girls—Lena Kaligaris, Tabitha "Tibby" Tomko-Rollins, Bridget Vreeland, and Carmen Lowell—who are best friends and have been together all their lives in Bethesda, Maryland, but are about to separate for the summer. Lena is spending the summer in Greece with her grandparents; Tibby is staying at home; Bridget is going to soccer camp in Mexico; and Carmen is visiting her father in South Carolina. The girls go browsing at a local thrift store before they separate for the summer. They convince Tibby to try on a pair of jeans, who in turn makes Lena try them on, then Bridget, then Carmen; they find that the Pants magically fits all four of them perfectly, even though they have different measurements. The girls decide to share the Pants equally among them over the summer as a way of keeping together when they are apart. Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen part the next day, and the film focuses on each girls' journey separately.
