With Christmas’ buying, baking, feasting, wrapping, and visiting over, it’s time to catch up on the heartwarming holiday movies you missed. Cozy up, turn on your device of choice, and feel the feels!
It’s A Wonderful Life – This lead character’s emotional torment is common. Wondering if we matter while believing we don’t. James Stewart stars in 1947’s contemplative flick sharing George Bailey’s reflective, desperate, and worrisome inner struggle with his personal value. As Christmas arrives George Bailey’s son teaches, “Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angels just got his wings.”
The Holiday – Two ladies who seek a big change switch continents and homes. A sweet, light film with the warmest, coziest English cottage. Just viewing the home makes you feel happy and content with a huge desire to live there. This movie is best watched in pajamas with hot chocolate. Just sayin.’
Love Actually – The intricately connected cast experiences love and meaning all over London. The movie opens with this relevant advice.
“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinions starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around. ”
