Winter is the best time to cuddle up with a glass of wine and some of your all time favourite movies. These are my five favourites… as in, if I could only watch five movies for the rest of my life, these would be them. They’re not especially “important” or spectacular films, they’re just… well, they’re just my favourites :)
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S
This movie is timeless. I will never get sick of it. Ever. It is perfect in every way. Audrey is flawless; the whole movie is just perfect. I think that Holly Golightly would agree that, short of a 6am trip to Tiffany’s, this DVD and a cup of tea is the best cure for the mean reds.
The. BEST. It came out the year before I was born, but still – childhood movie greatness. I watch this at least once a year, it’s just so fun – it’s fantasy, comedy and romance, all in one. Plus, Robin Wright is such a babe.
JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH
It is weird, it is wonderful and I love, love, LOVE IT! Tim Burton produced it, so… duh, it’s awesome. There’s a terrifying giant rhino, two crazy evil aunts, animated insect friends, a touch of magic and a giant peach that flies James all the way from England to New York City. If you’ve never seen it, your childhood was missing something awesome – so watch it.
Late 90’s amazing-ness anyone? Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair… yes, yes, yes, yes. It’s the perfect amount of dark, twisty and major teenage drama.
Ok evidently I have a thing with 90’s movies. This is a biographical HBO movie about 80’s supermodel Gia Marie Carangi. High fashion, drugs and New York in the 80’s. It is beautiful and tragic. I’m not a big Angelina Jolie fan, but I will admit that she plays Gia perfectly.
