This year I have tried to do a few theme within a theme posts and this week I’m doing the same, I’m picking movies with small towns during, surprise surprise, winter! It’s that time of the year, and it’s snowing all around the world – I’ve seen various instagram photos of this wonderful white fuzz. So it seemed only fitting that I’d share my three wonderful snow-filled picks.
The film takes place in a small town, where an arrogant reporter is sent to cover an event but he unfortunately gets stuck in a day. That’s right, he has to live the same day over and over again, and I bet you all knew that. I feel like there’s a lot to love about Groundhog Day, and the small town element to it is definitely one of those aspects.
This is one of those movies I watched later in life and I’m so glad I did. I probably wouldn’t have gotten the humour back when I was a teenager, but I did when I watched it. There is just something special about it and the series, where the first season is based on the movie, feels just as good. And I feel like whatever I say about, I would give away the surprises the movie provides from start to finish.
Not necessarily a town, more like a community, Wind River is a movie I saw just last Sunday and loved it. It portrays a very strong story through very simple scenes, and stories. It has emotion, heart and most importantly, a strong message that I wasn’t even aware of. And the snow, well, out of all my three picks, the snow plays the most important part in this movie.
