The show – set in fictional Stars Hollow, Connecticut – centered on a mother-daughter duo who were best friends first and parent/child second.
Series creator Amy Sherman-Paladino (a.k.a the smart American girl’s hero) breathed tremendous life into her characters.
For example, Bledel’s character, Rory, aspired to be CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, quoted Dorothy Parker (Sherman-Palladino’s production company is named Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions) and read Proust. Literature was essentially an un-credited character on “Gilmore Girls.”
The plot goes like this: Lorelai Gilmore, turned down a life of privilege after becoming pregnant at 16 and opted to raise her daughter on her own.
At the show’s premiere, Lorelai was 32, Rory was 16, and the show was about how Lorelai wanted Rory to be exactly like her, but at the same time be nothing like her.
She wanted Rory to have the advantages she never had (top-notch education, world travel), but also wanted to keep her away from coming out parties, cotillions, rich snobbery and overall stuffiness.
Consequently, all we have to do is wait and see if “Gilmore Girls” film will appear.
