With the weather absolutely pounding us this week, it’s understandable if you want to stay indoors and keep cool. But, if you choose to do so, you don’t need feel left out of the summer fun! Here are some movies to help you feel summery.
Call Me by Your Name (2017)
I’ve already reviewed this film, but I couldn’t help but mention it again. I love the whole vibe of this film, and the storyline is both beautiful and heart-wrenching. If you’re looking for a bit of summer sun, a forbidden romance, and some villa/food envy, then this is the flick for you.
If you’re after a brits abroad film, but something beyond what the Inbetweeners movie can offer, give Unrelated a view. Based in Tuscany, the story follows an older woman as she visits friends in their retreat. After falling for a younger man in the family (Tom Hiddleston in his first major role), she risks it all in trying to get his attention.
A family-friendly affair, Moana offers a beautifully made Disney feature with catchy songs and a summer vibe. I’ve never wanted to swim in a cartoon ocean before, but somehow Disney manages to create a perfect visual throughout the film. Moana, a young island princess, is on a mission to save the world, and with a demi-god by her side, what can go wrong?
The Parent Trap (1998)
Looking for a bit of nostalgia? Rewatch The Parent Trap remake! After meeting at summer camp, two twins embark on a mission to get their parents back together. This is a decent watch and one that doesn’t require too much attention – perfect if you’re suffering from the heat.
500 Days of Summer (2009)
Based around a summer romance, 500 Days of Summer is a great look into a relationship that just isn’t working. It’s a great watch if you’ve lived through unrequited love, high relationship expectations, and heartbreak. At least the setting is nice…
