WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (1989)
A chance encounter between two graduates culminates in a short-term friendship. But when fate brings them back together five years later, they are forced to deal with how they feel about each other. A classic light-hearted movie that everyone needs to watch at least once.
SAVING MR BANKS (2013)
London’s Pamela Travers, a financially crunched author, visits Los Angeles to meet Walt Disney, who is very keen to adapt her ‘Mary Poppins’ for the cinema. But his methods do not meet her approval.
BRUCE ALMIGHTY (2003)
We’ve all done it. Complain to god about why our lives are so tough. So when Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) is given the powers by god to run the world to show him how difficult it is, and to see if he can do any better. A feel-good movie that goes perfectly with your favourite cocktail.
SOMEONE GREAT (2018)
This one is ‘that type of mood’ movie. A modern rom-com based in New-York city. Dumped by her long-term boyfriend, a music journalist recruits her two best friends for one last outrageous adventure before she moves to San Francisco. This one is to watch on Face-time with the girls over a drink and a load of snacks.
During this self-isolation period, movie nights with your friends is definitely not on the cards. So Netflix have introduced the idea of a ‘Netflix party’. This allows a group chat to be added to your favourite shows, so you can have a Netflix party and host long-distance movie nights.
