Hope Floats - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Birdee Pruitt goes on television, expecting to get a free makeover. Instead, on national television, her best friend announces that she was sleeping with Billy, Birdee's husband. A total wreck, Birdee returns to her home town of Smithville, Texas in search of a new life. Housing with a mother she barely knows and her and her daughter who misses her father dearly, Birdee does everything she can to make her life a complete hellhole. But slowly, her mother forces her into a new life; taking a job and getting a new man. As she searches for a job, she realizes that people still see her as the high school beauty queen and nothing else, the one who teased the unpopular kids and caught people's eyes as she walked down the street. Even though her life has changed, people's views haven't. But then there's Justin Matisse, a childhood friend, who's view also hasn't changed; he's still in love with Birdee.
