Your favorite movie and what it’s about
No, I cannot possibly narrow it down to one.
I can list some of my favorite movies right now. Lets go for 5 that I would want to watch right now if I had the opportunity.
1.) Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Man, I really need to invest and buy this movie. It is just wonderful. It’s adapted from the musical of the same name about Hedwig, who grew up in east berlin, had a (botched) sex change operation so ze could immigrate. Its also about gender identity and it has great music.
2.) BBC’s 6 hour Pride and Prejudice
Old fashioned polite british romance, AND sassyness! It is the adaptation most true to the book , and it has colin firth.
I really like the Frames, and this movie is sweet. Its about a serendipitous musical connection of two artists/friends.
4.) the Up Series (documentary films)
This is about people. It follows a group of kids from the age of 7 to 49. Its an astonishing piece of documentary filmmaking that spans (almost) an entire lifetime.
5.)Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill (documentary)
Its about a man who takes care of parrots in San Francisco. Its so great.
I could think of 5 more, this list is ever changing.
