The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) To make the most of their meager retirement savings, a group of British seniors relocates to India to live out their golden years at the Marigold Hotel. But upon arrival, they discover that the once-lavish resort has wilted considerably.

The Soloist (2009) … I can't say enough good things about this movie. Jamie Foxx was AMAZING as Nathaniel Ayers, the schizophrenic cello prodigy who, after two years at Julliard, started to deteriorate mentally and found himself homeless. Robert Downey, Jr. plays the L.A. Times columnist who sees a great story in Nathaniel. He writes about him and befriends him along the way, as well. This is based on a true story.

FLYBOYS (2006) … This movie is about a group of American boys who all go to France to fly planes for the French Air Service during WWI. Seeing how these pilots engaged in aerial combat in those days really makes one appreciate how far we've come militarily. These fellas fought face to face and were the bravest of the brave. My dad flew Mustangs during the Korean War. God Bless the men and women in service today.

The Flight of the Red Balloon is a French film that was filmed in Paris. It's the story of a little boy whose parents are seldom present. Throughout the movie, everywhere he goes, there seems to be a red balloon floating somewhere in his vicinity. The balloon is almost a character itself in this sweet foreign film. In the hustle & bustle of life, as adults, we tend to push the balloon aside but here, Simon reminds us that our inner child is alive and well.

I was thirteen years old when my class took a field trip to see this in the movie theatre. I had never seen a love story before and I was sold on Shakespeare before the poison ever crossed their lips. ♡

Thin Red Line. This WWII film was amazing. One thing that stood out for me throughout the movie was how the director, Terrence Malick, would be shooting a war scene and cut the camera away to a peaceful part of nature that looked like it just didn't fit in the moment. It spoke volumes of how, even in the midst of unimaginable horror, beautiful things still flourish.

Grease!!! I think I saw this movie ten or twelve times at the movie theatre. Danny Zuko and Sandy were the perfect match and it didn't hurt that Danny was H*O*T!!!
