As you could tell from the title of this post, today I felt a bit festive. Not exactly for Christmas, but for a "Winter Sort Of Movie." Do you know what I mean? So I watched Little Women. The one with Winona Rider, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Susan Sarandon, and Christian Bale. BEST ACTORS all in one classic wintry movie. I swear, there are certain films I can't help but watch in the winter because they just have a vibe that makes me want to cozy up in front of a fire with some hot tea and my love in my arms. I seriously forgot how good this movie is! I mean, it was made in the 1990's, but it has the BEST soundtrack ever. Christian Bale is soooo young! And so is Kirsten Dunst, for that matter. I even teared up a little bit on certain scenes in the movie. So that just goes to show you how awesome it is. Here are a couple other suggestions for some perfect winter movies. By the way, this might not apply to guys, but I SWEAR if you are a girl you will love these!
1) The Anne of Green Gables entire movie series. So romantic. Also, I always had a secret wish to be best friends with Megan Follows (the main actress). Yes, I know I am totally weird.
2) Pride and Prejudice (the British 6 hour long version... but the Kiera Knightly one is awesome too)
3) A Little Princess (starring Liesel Matthews) <---- ummm I cry on this movie every time too. ha ha. It is a children's film!
Ok... so that is 3 more classic movies to add to your winter watch-list. I don't know why, but usually I am not much of a movie person, unless it is wintertime. Then I just feel inclined to sit back and watch something kind of slow-paced with some quality romance... or with a heartwarming theme. Same goes for reading too. I feel like sitting back and reading a REALLY GOOD book. I really enjoy "The Work and the Glory" series. And Twilight (don't hate me ok!! It is actually quite gripping.) Any other good movie or book recommendations? xoxox
