Now that the weather is getting (much) colder one of my favourite things to do is cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie. There’s nothing better than curling up with a cup of tea and watching Audrey as you glance over and see the snow falling through the frosted window- don’t lie, it’s an enticing thought.
In case you end up inside with nothing to do on such a wintry day, here is my list of some of my favourite movies to help you endure the cold.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
(1961) There’s no one more chic than Audrey, Period. Based on the novel by Truman Capote this is one of the most loved and iconic movies of all time and for good reason. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. It’s definitely in my top three.
(1997) I remember watching this movie as a little girl and then re-enacting the scene when Jack falls into the depths of the ocean with my best friend- ”Jack, Jack come back.” Okay, who didn’t? Kate and Leo were one of my first admired on-screen couples and that movie will always be one of my favourites. Plus, Celine killed it with the soundtrack.
Meet Me in St. Louis
(1944) Judy Garland is incredible and when she sings “Have yourself a Merry little Christmas” my heart melts. If you like classic musicals this one’s one of the best.
Sex and the City
(2008) When the Sex and the City movie came out I had never watched the show but I fell in love. Of course the show is amazing (I’ve seen all of the seasons multiple times now) but I will never forget when I first fell in love with Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha.
(2003) Love Actually is just a super cute, feel good film. It’s kind of a Collaboration Romance/Christmas movie based on different love stories that are all connected. And everyone has a British accent, how bad can it be?
(2006) So many things that I love about this movie: Cameron Diaz – gorgeous, Kate Winslet – gorgeous, Jude Law – also gorgeous, and Jack Black -…hilarious. Plus it’s another holiday movie, which is the best time of year.
Gone With The Wind
(1939) I love this movie but to be honest, you better have a solid five hours if you’re going to watch it- it’s one of the longest movies I’ve ever seen. My first impression was that it would be a long, boring movie about the war but that isn’t the case at all. It’s so dramatic and Scarlett and Rhett’s love is almost as complicated as Blair and Chuck’s.
My Fair Lady
(1964) Oddly enough I came across this movie in my high school English class. Audrey does fine work in this musical as she plays Eliza Doolittle- a young woman of the lower class who gets speaking lessons from Henry Higgins. The songs are so catchy and any movie with Audrey seriously can’t be bad.
Coco avant Chanel
(2009) Coco Chanel is one of my favourite designers so I was pretty much guaranteed to love this movie. A story about Coco’s life and how she rose to become one of the most influential designers of all time. Every time I need a little bit of inspiration and motivation I watch this movie- it never fails.
P.S. I love You
(2007) All I can say is grab some tissues… or the whole box. The first time I watched this movie I was actually crying so hard that I decided to shut it off. I’ve probably seen it ten times and I still cry every time I watch it. But don’t get me wrong, it is SO good. Way better than The Notebook in my opinion.
