Whether you’re living in sunny Florida or frigid Minnesota, there’s just something magical about “cozy” this time of year. I found it to be especially true when I lived in Boca Raton, wanting, missing, needing that holiday spirit. Even if you run one of these movies in the background of your day, when you’re not even paying attention, but it’s there, on, in lieu of the radio, it’s nice to call upon “instant warm fuzzies.”
I love making Holiday movie lists! In fact, I love all of my movie posts in general. And, I adore my list of Non-Traditional Holiday films! I’m big into self-love. It’s time to add some new films to the file. Some of these films I’ve written about previously. I’ll link to them in their titles.
LONG WAY DOWN
I read the book A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby, so I was thrilled to see that it was streaming on Netflix in a film adaptation! I haven’t seen it yet, just the first five minutes, which were very true to the book. This one is on my list, and I hope to watch it tonight!
I’ve written about this movie before. I’m a big fan. It lingers. This film reminds me a bit of Sliding Doors.
I’ve written about this film a few times. Granted, it has subtitles, but may I just say, you cannot let this deter you! This movie is so fantastic, so much so, that I’m willing to abuse the exclamation mark in my writing! It’s now streaming on Netflix, too! Summary here >>
This isn’t a holiday film, mind you, but it’s well worth a watch this time of year. I think it’s the Keira Knightly connection to Love Actually (also streaming on Netflix).
It’s streaming on Netflix, and yes, I’ve written about this film before as well. This means that I loved it THAT MUCH to include it here, as well. This also reminds me of Sliding Doors with Gweneth.
Right now, I’m watching LIFE AFTER BETH (had to stop watching it, not for me), and after that…
OBVIOUS CHILD (I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS MOVIE!) as we await pathology results! Like, serious love. This might be my favorite new movie. LOVE. Jenny Slate’s Obvious Child is the kind of movie I wish I could watch in slow motion, just to make it last longer. I don’t want it to end.
