Plenty of movies that capture the many different feelings that come along with New Year’s Eve, whether you’re focused on finding the right person to kiss at midnight or just wanting to drink champagne with your loved ones.
One of those films is the first Sex and the City movie. In one scene from the 2008 hit, a single Carrie goes to bed early on New Year’s Eve. Meanwhile, Miranda is in Brooklyn all alone and she calls Carrie. Even though Miranda says not to come over, Carrie arrives just in time for midnight.
“The idea of being single on New Year’s Eve has always been treacherous for everybody,” director Michael Patrick King, told Entertainment Weekly in 2020. “There’s something about that bullseye of midnight that makes almost an imperative that you check in with yourself. You’re supposed to be in love at midnight. You’re supposed to be in a couple. Which is why it’s so great for Sex and the City, because anytime we could underline what society says vs. the reality of where people are was always powerful.”
Parker also loved the scene, telling EW, “I loved it because it wasn’t about words, it was just about this desperate need to connect to somebody that actually matters to you.”
