Like legwarmers, but not.

I’ve spent tonight watching WALL-E and I’m now watching Amelie. It’s a night for heartwarming films.

I don’t mean fuzzy, romantic films. I mean life-affirming, dream-igniting ones that make you believe that anything is possible.

To this list, I’d add:

The Life Aquatic
The Goonies
Stand By Me
A Life Less Ordinary
The Darjeeling Unlimited

I’m sure there are more, I just can’t think of them all right now. I’m a sucker for a story about dreamers and dreams.

Do you have a go-to heartwarmer? What is it?
