Had to clear this with command central to make sure we wouldn’t be engaging in folderol beneath the dignity and standards of the site and … we’re good to go! (Thank you, @Laura.)
So I just got back from a walk and switched on the tele to see what I might look at while icing my knee and perusing the internet only to see that they were playing my all time favorite feel good movie. I almost never watch the same movie twice but I was happy to see the last 30 minutes of this one yet again. That inspired me to ask the question: what movie continues to touch you every time you see it, what’s your favorite feel-good movie?
I think mine focuses on human nature, what happiness is, character and redemption … but I don’t think it has any overtly religious bent. For my money it is the most interesting what-if movie I’ve ever seen. Philosophically I’d say it is existential in nature bringing to mind hints of Martin Buber and Soren Kierkegaard. My favorite feel good movie came out in 1993 and is Groundhog Day
I wonder who else has seen it and what you thought of it. But more importantly (as I am always building a list of movies to see next) what is your favorite feel-good movie?
