We thought a little film therapy might be good this Friday in preparation for the weekend. Movies are a great distraction from the challenges of life. Here are a few films which we think are uplifting and good for the soul. Happy viewing!!
Imagine being able to act like you were 13 again.....that's exactly what happens to Tom Hanks in this feel good movie. More than anything, 13 year old josh wants to be an adult, he makes a wish and wakes up the next day stuck in the body of a man. Trying to work out what to do, he takes a job with a toy company and so the fun begins.......
There's nothing more uplifting than an against the odds sporting movie. This movie is based on the true story of the first Jamaican bobsled team trying to make it to the winter Olympics. this movie proves that hard work and determination pays off.
The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz is one of the most charming movies of all time. Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a Tornado's path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Dorothy begins her quest to return home but meets some strange characters along the way....
Toy story is a film that captures both the joys of childhood and the wonders of imagination. The characters may be animated but it doesn't stop them from capturing the sympathy of the audience since they are faced with relateable circumstances. Toy story is also guaranteed to make you smile and giggle.
E.T is possibly one of the most beautiful movies ever made. E.T is an alien who wants to go home. It's a story of friendship and hope. Look out for some inspirational one-liners...
Wonderfully acted by Tom Hanks, Forrest Gump succeeds at most things despite his low IQ. The one thing that he hasn't succeeded in is winning the affection of his childhood sweetheart. Another movie that is filled with some very memorable one-liners.
Miracle on 34th Street
A little girl discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. In this movie the little girl (Susan) is given the most precious gift of all-something to believe in.
Although the beginning of this movie is a little heartrending, Up is a joyous and personal journey of self-discovery. By tying thousands of balloons to his home 78 year old Carl sets out to fulfil his life long dream of travel, Russell, a little boy is a stowaway and so a beautiful friendship forms....
The story of one fishes journey to find his missing son.
Finding Nemo is an endearing tale of love, determination and hope, packed with the most wonderful characters you can imagine.
We hope you will spare a couple of hours to watch one of these beautiful movies and leave the pressures of life aside for a while. Preparing for the weekend is not about spending hours getting ready to go out. Getting ready for the weekend is doing what you like to do and doing what is relaxing for you/
