1. Steel Magnolias
I love the Southern charm, humour and emotion of this film. It has a stellar cast of strong female actresses and Dylan McDermott for eye candy… Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, a young Julia Roberts and an even younger Daryl Hannah.
It’s a thing of beauty and has such funny one liners as (when referring to the mayor’s wife’s profile as she dances…) “It’s like two pigs, fightin’ under a blanket.”
2. The Shawshank Redemption
The best film I have never seen.
If you’ve been reading this series, you know I have a fear of false imprisonment. I know that this is one of the best films ever made, but I would honestly not sleep again if I watched it.
My most memorable cinema experience as a child. We all cried like babies… but then we were babies so that’s ok. There was one kid behind me who was traumatised when E.T. was saying goodbye to Elliot. I’d say she is still in therapy!
Philippians 4:8 Whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
