...going away, family emergency, v Ill relative. Could do with warm uplifting film or series to download to take mind off it.

Amazon or Netflix.

Lion is lovely on prime

Hidden figures is excellent

The 100 foot journey is a lovely film.

A series rather than a film, but give Marvellous Mrs Maisel a go on Amazon.
I’m not sure if it’s really supposed to be described as warm and uplifting but it made me feel good watching it, seeing a strong woman portrayed so well, even though it’s set in the 50’s. It’s also really funny.

Oh, I loved lion. Such a good film.

Hunt for the wilderpeople is my current go to movie for a good laugh. For a series I loved the good place and also everything sucks (both on Netflix)

Was just coming on to say Hunt for The Wilder People. Really good quirky film. It made me smile.

The Help

Hampstead is brilliant, really cosy watching.

I might be a div but I love Bridesmaids as a feel good film. Laughs and a lovely ending.

Loved Lion and Hunt for the Wilder people.

Also liked Sing Street and LaLa Land (both on Netflix) but my go-to happy film is still Amelie. If you want some gentle, feel good telly though, you can't go wrong with The Detectorists, if you haven't already discovered it.

Pressed return too soon. Hope your family emergency is in hand soon and things improve.

Ohforfoxsakereturns Fri 23-Feb-18 21:03:17

Was also going to suggest Hampstead. Lovely film.

CrabappleBiscuit Fri 23-Feb-18 21:23:49

Something like the detectorists is what I’m looking for! Just downloaded Hampstead.

Grace and Frankie for a series?

mrsmuddlepies Fri 23-Feb-18 22:08:10

About time (Richard Curtis) is wonderful 😄

Oh yes to About Time. Hampstead is very, erm, gentle 😁 but that might be just the ticket.

not a film; 45 minute documentary on Netflix UNBROKEN: the snowboard life of Mark McMorris

Mindgone Sat 24-Feb-18 00:20:25

I found Ted2 a very funny film, and just what we needed once as a great distraction film!

Meandmy4 Sat 24-Feb-18 00:25:50

Steel magnolias ?... old but fab

I might be growing out on a limb .... but wonder Woman? I could watch it all day long, and I'm the last person to be into comic book stuff.
