I'm watching 'Sense and Sensibility'. It's so lovely. Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant being 'proper' and very intelligent.

Untouchable. Hilarious film.

I am a cynical old bag

but the Sound of Music with its fucking relentless positivity and cheer fills me shrivelled heart with joy

About Time - such a lovely film with lovely characters

Strictly Ballroom.
Little Women.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Gorgeous 1920s setting, lovely fun story, amazing actors. Perfect in every way.

The Bishops Wife - on my "must watch" list of Christmas films. A sweet story with the added bonus of Cary Grant.

Cinema Paradiso.

The Music Man

I came on to say 'About Time' too. Just a lovely film! So lovely. One of my favourites.

Amelie is quite lovely and gentle.

TSOM for sure....who isn't horrified by Rolff and his betrayal, the Countess and her conniving although she realises and Does The Right Thing in the end and the joyous Nuns and their singing!!

My Fair love love the grand ball scene

Elf I am probably even more cynical and heart shrivelled than Muddah, but I defy anyone not to feel the joy after seeing it.

I second Little Women, although I do start weeping shortly after Beth contracts Scarlet Fever and continue intermittently (but more happily) all the way the final scene. DH has banned me from watching it in his presence.

The Secret Garden, the 1993 adaptation, is admittedly aimed at children but is a beautiful adaptation that leaves me with all the feels.

North & South, the 2003 miniseries with Richard Armitage. That is the loveliest of them all. You might want to take the precautionary measure of having your ovaries covered in a protective layer of adamantium though, just in case...

Also, off the top of my head--

84 Charing Cross Road
My Fair Lady
Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby... really anything involving a combination of Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant.

The Railway Children
Strictly Ballroom
Singing' in the Rain + any Fred and Ginger musical

"Give me an occupation Miss Dashwood, or I shall run mad"

I love Alan Rickman. He's such a beautiful actor, so intense when he's heartsick.

I always love To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything as a film which makes me smile happily at its fabulousness

OnlyLovers Tue 17-Nov-15 11:22:15

Mary Poppins.


A Knight's Tale.

Singin' in the Rain.

And YES, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, all of those. So witty. Such great threads.

OnlyLovers Tue 17-Nov-15 11:23:25

Oh, also Enchanted and The Muppets (the one from 2011, not the more recent). Both are pitch-perfect and Amy Adams is magnificent in both.

Local Hero.

Spent a lovely couple of hours watching An Affair to Remember in front of the fire on Sunday. Set me up well for the rest of the day!
