Not your usual holiday movies

Not your usual holiday movies

How’s your Christmas holidays? We’re taking some time to recalibrate, pause, and linger in the holiday spirit that’s not gone yet. And then we slowly get back to business – we start planning, dreaming, and rushing towards our goals. Sounds the same for you? Many of us like watching movies to wind down. You’ve probably spent Christmas week watching all the holiday classics and hallmark movies, so we decided to make an unusual movie list for you. Keep scrolling! 

Give “When Harry Met Sally” a watch – it’s an enjoyable romcom classic starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal. The story never fails to make us believe in love and miracles again. Besides the engaging plot, this film is an encyclopedia of the later 1980s and early 1990s fashion. And people celebrate Christmas in the movie – so this watch won’t take you too far from the Christmas tree. :)

“8 Women” is a star-studded Christmas mystery story by Francois Ozon: the leads in the movie are Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, and Fanny Ardant. The movie is incredibly stylish. The director mentioned he wanted to highlight the femininity, beauty, and glamor of the heroines living in the 1950s.

Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight” is a romantic comedy featuring Emma Stone and Colin Firth. Watch it to see love, a tad of magic, and fabulous costumes in the best traditions of the 1920s. It’s the perfect combination for the holidays.

If you’re in the mood for an extra glass of champagne, sip it while watching “In the Mood for Love” by Wong Kar-wai. This film is a visual masterpiece. You will notice genius camera work and the legendary look of the heroine: flawless qipao, hair updo, perfectly matching earrings, and red lipstick. The heroine changes 20 stunning outfits throughout the movie.

1957’s “An Affair to Remember” starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr was rightfully honored with an Oscar nomination for costume design. It’s beautiful and it fits the theme – the action takes place during Christmas.
