Sometimes, when I’m feeling really down, I need to watch one of my comfort movies. I really don’t know how they make it to the list, because they usually are very different and very few. So it’s a mistery probably related to some deep and specific emotion they have. The most recent ones include Pride and Prejudice, Mulan and then Hunt for the Wilderpeople, this last one which I only discovered some months ago and can’t recommend enough. It was also my movie choice for this bad week.
I will not talk much about it because I think the first time you watch a movie you need the ‘surprise’ experience, but it’s basically about an orphan boy who is being adopted into a family that lives in the middle of nowhere and who are very funny and strange. The story is all about the relationship between them and how they deal and cope with things.
My favorite thing about it is that even though sometimes things get ‘serious’ it’s normally approached in a very comic way and ends getting very funny. I guess this is why it really makes me happy. It’s like a positive view to bad things.
So if you want some wild, strange and funny film, full of emotions and meaning and adventure, please watch this. I don’t know how there’s not more people talking about it.
And if you do end up watching, please tell me what are your feelings about it!
Also feel free to share your comfort films because I really need to find some new ones.
Have a good week guys!
(it also makes me remember of some Wes Anderson films, mainly Moonrise Kingdom!)
