A holiday weekend means we relish the chance to slow down and spend time with a movie or three. There’s just something so great about getting lost in a good story. We get out all the handknit blankets and burrow into the coziness of it all.
We point you to our solid-gold list of Best Snow Movies. If you’re snowless this holiday, these movies will take you to a very wintry place.
In addition, our eternally growing list of Knit to This ideas is really rich at this point. Have a spin through dozens of fantastic movies, music, audiobooks, and podcasts. There’s so much good stuff in here. When we’re casting about for our next entertainment, we go here.
From Cristina, two perfect recommendations: the complete A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim free on YouTube linked above. And the Snow episode of HBO’s A World of Calm narrated by Cillian Murphy.
From DG Strong: his take on The Long Day Closes, the 1992 film set in the 1950s. Dreamy, impressionistic, one of his favorites.
And DG makes the case for The Holly and the Ivy, one of the great, moody home-for-the-holidays films.
Peace to you on this day.
Ann and Kay
