They made us laugh, cry and think with their exciting love lives. Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte have become, with the passing of the years, every woman’s best friends, with their ability to make us smile about our insecurities and oddities. Their stories are our stories.
Brilliantly adapted for television by director and screenwriter Michael Patrick King, Sex and the City provoked a scandal when it appeared for the first time on television, due to the sexual freedom proposed and the “shameless” sex scenes.
