Stunning photography and subtle, paired down acting
If you, like me, are a sucker for stunning photography and subtle, paired down acting, then Zeffirelli‘s ethereal masterpiece is a must watch.
Main protagonists Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey achieved overnight success with this movie, only to score minor roles in the rest of their careers.
It is a shame as their delicate portrayals of Romeo and Juliet are truly touching. Zeffirelli‘s treatment is like a beautiful watercolour and captured the zeitgeist of the era (flower power, hippy movement). It’s a must see -ground breaking and very moving- film.
Michael York plays Tybalt – unlike the leads in the film, his popularity as an actor continued steadily over the years (Austin Powers (1999), The Three Musketeers (1973)).
Lets see more movies like A Walk to Remember.
An amazing mother-daughter relationship
The loss of a child is traumatic at any age. In Terms of Endearment, Shirley Mac Laine plays a rather narcissistic mother who has a fairly dysfunctional relationship with her daughter, played by Debra Winger.
The two actresses famously did not get on, but on screen they managed to portray an amazing mother-daughter relationship.
I recommend watching Shirley Mac Laine‘s impressive back catalogue: you can start from this article on her best movies.
Thankfully the real crying only starts in earnest in the second half of the film so you can prepare yourself mentally for your “letting it all out” moment.
The film manages to avoid fake sentimentality by showing flawed characters who cheat and lie: this ain’t no Disney.
A movie about friendship and strong female bonds
Julia Roberts at her best (she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Steel Magnolias). And if you’re a fan of Dolly Parton, then you’re in for a treat.
The all-star cast helps – you get some good performances; the script is sentimental and the aim is clearly to move the audience to tears. The theme is, once again, loss and how people cope with it differently.
It’s a movie about friendship and strong female bonds, perfect for a girlie night in (just remember to wear waterproof mascara). The main “stage” for the story is a beauty salon in Louisiana – it’s the hub of the community and the place where friendships are formed and strengthened.
Bad day at work? Have you been dumped? No chocolate in the house? Let those tears roll, baby!You’ll be sobbing uncontrollably watching these movies so if you need a pick me up afterwards come back to itcher for something to cheer you up (like this)!
