Tonight, I just needed a good movie to watch. Lately, it’s been rare for me to sit down and watch a whole movie without interruption – I’m either texting away or on facebook/instagram or preoccupied reading some random article. Husband always seems to pick the right movie to suit my mood. Hector and the Search for Happiness is exactly what I needed. It’s wonderfully simplistic storytelling about the our unending pursuit of happiness when, really, happiness is not the end pursuit…rather it’s the journey that makes us the most happy.
What’s your favorite movie? Planning a movie night? I like movies that take a deep dive into the human psyche… what makes us tick, what drives us, what do we want out of life, what connects us. What can I say? I’m a deeply relationship based person.
Here are a few recommendations on my end:
The Science of Sleep
Love Me If You Dare
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Darjeeling Limited
Hector and the Search for Happiness
The Grand Budapest Hotel (yes, it’s on here twice. It’s just soooo good!)
Inside Llewyn Davis
500 Days of Summer
