All Hamlette ever has to say are the words Christmas, movie, and tag in the same sentence and I'm there. And, to make it even better, Katie actually tagged me! Thanks, friends. ♥ Be sure to check out Hamlette's post for a full run-down on the deets of the tag.
Skylark, from the Sarah, Plain and Tall trilogy. (Which, by the by, is something we should be talking about more.) In this installment, in particular, the Whittings have to navigate the challenges of cultivating that wild land Out West. And it's fairly stirring, what. There are Meaningful Themes about needing to etch your name in the land to survive.
The land, the land, the land.
October Baby features a couple long-lasting relationships: Hannah and her lifelong best friend, Hannah and her dad . . .
Fabulous movie, by the way. ♥
I know not all of Sabrina (1995) happens in France, but Significant Portions of it do. And I'm a fan. 😉
The Parent Trap, Lindsay Lohan version. Annie and Hallie have to conduct incognito international matchmaking efforts, and they do that with actual house phones. Man, what a time them '90s were.
|"Little imps," she says, with great fondness.|
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers literally spells out its romance count in its title, so . . .
*an idea comes*
*but it's risky*
Am I allowed to use this example?
I don't know.
|A Quiet Place (2018)|
The swimming pool is the scene of more than one Fraught Moment in The Philadelphia Story.
Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel. Anne goes chasing after the cow in a muddy pasture, actually, causing Diana to follow her and then ruin a lovely cream dress. "Wretched cow!"
|(The characters themselves weren't so happy about it.)|
The iconic waltz between Cinderella and her prince is really lovely and soothing in the 2015 remake. ♥
Glory Road. Y'all ever seen this? It's quite good. Worth a watch. Iconic lines. Themes of racial prejudice, found family, perseverance, etc. & so forth. Josh Lucas.
I wasn't a huge fan of this movie, but La La Land. Sebastian lets out all sorts of angst on his keyboard, multiple times.
|I do like the music.|
#12. Drummers Drumming ⎼ movie with characters in the military
In the true holiday spirit,
(It does make me cry.)
