It’s a Wonderful Life
So, it’s Christmas classic filmed in1946. If you haven’t seen it though, to be honest, you are really missing out. Sometimes things get in the way of, well, the life you thought you’d live. This movie is about that experience and how deeply frustrating it is when your life continues to progress in a way you hadn’t planned. The movie still has a strong message for all of us today. How you matter. Click here for a peek.
Paris Can Wait
In my article, The Vibrant Fall Rose, this movie was mentioned as inspiring on many levels. First it’s written, produced, and directed by Eleanor Coppola. Love that she’s going strong at 80 years young! Paris Can Wait explores reluctant self-discovery through the experience of travel. If you’re a Francophile, you’ll love it even more!

Oh, how I love this movie! Sideways is raw and full of awkward, human moments that come from deep emotional pain. But, it’s also damn hilarious in a sometimes crude way. It deals with overcoming deep depression, moving on after a divorce, and personal demons. Wine lovers will definitely want to watch this, with a good Pinot Noir of course. Click here for a peek.
If you’re a fan of the theatre, you may have seen this on the stage as it’s a long-running play. This hilarious movie is about an English woman who realizes she’s stuck in a rut and lost who she was along the path of the life. Given an opportunity to explore Greece with a girlfriend, Shirley discovers some important things about herself along the way. Click here for a peek.
Under the Tuscan Sun
I fell hard for this movie. In fact, I still can’t watch it enough. Something just resonates. It’s another movie of self-discovery following a brutal life experience. Life doesn’t always turn out the way you expect, but your narrative can stay the same while discovering it in ways you didn’t necessarily expect. Oh, and much of it is in Italy. It-al-y.
