Monday Movies - Feel Good Films

Feature Presentation...

Molly of the Bumbles blog asks in light of all the cold weather, what are the movies that warm your heart?

Here are mine:

1. Planes, Trains & Automobiles
2. Amelie
3. The Straight Story
4. Chocolat
5. Young @ Heart

From which of the films above is this quote taken:

"I'd give each one of 'em a stick and, one for each one of 'em, then I'd say, 'You break that.' Course they could real easy. Then I'd say, 'Tie them sticks in a bundle and try to break that.' Course they couldn't. Then I'd say, "That bundle... that's family."

Leave a link to your blog post where you’ve shared your response or, if you don’t have a blog, share your response in the comment section.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles always makes me laugh! Nice list.

Quote is from The Straight Story

Shannon, you're correct! The quote is from "The Straight Story." Have you seen it? I think it is about perfect from scene to scene.

Ahhh (banging head on desk) I can't believe we didn't list Planes, Trains & Automobiles. The car rental scene at the airport is classic. I have never heard of The Straight Story so I wasn't familiar with that quote - but I like it. I looked the movie up and it seems very different for a David Lynch movie. Thanks for playing this week!

People are surprised to know that David Lynch directed "The Straight Story." IMO, this is the film that best showcases his amazing talent as a filmmaker.
