Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) is a fantasy directed by Francis Ford Coppola about a middle-aged housewife, Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner), who is facing a divorce from her husband Charlie (Nicolas Cage), but gets a chance to relive her past and change it.
There is no point in feeling regret about your past. If you had a chance to go back in time, you would probably make the same choices again. If you changed your past, you may not have the great things you have now.
Charlie: “Here. It’s a birthday present … It opens, too. Look inside.”
Peggy Sue, while opening a heart-shaped locket: “Scott and Beth. Where did you get this?”
Charlie: “Who are Scott and Beth? Your mother gave me those. It’s you and me. You know that.”
[Peggy Sue realizes that without Charlie she would not have her children, Scott and Beth.]
