Movie recommendations for March 15th-21th 2020

With everything happening in the world right now its best for everyone to stay home! I know its not possible for everyone to stay home due to certain lines of work or other unavoidable situations. But as for everyone else we should do our part and stay home to protect those who do have to leave their homes. I thought I would share 10 movie recommendations per week so you have a bit of entertainment while at home! Enjoy! 

Umbrellas of Cherbourg - 1964 
A romantic musical where an umbrella owners daughter falls in love with a garage mechanic. Meanwhile she is being pressured by her mother to marry a wealthy man (Roland) It's a french film so make sure you turn on your subtitles if you don't speak french! This movie will give you MAJOR fashion inspiration as well as the colour palette throughout the entire movie is breathtaking. 

Where the boys are - 1960 
4 college girls go to fort lauderdale for spring break and seek out adventure and romance! It's hard to find photos online but this movie give me SO MUCH fashion inspiration !  This is the vibe I want to go for this spring and summer!

Funny Face - 1957
A New York fashion photographer is struck by Jo, a bookshop worker, He photographs her by accident during a photoshoot for quality magazine. He believes she has potential to be a big model and takes her to Paris.  Astaire's character was loosely based on Richard Avedon's career, who also provided many Photographs for the film (Richard Avedon is my favourite photographer, he's everyones favourite lol)  This movie is fun and filmed beautiful, its in my top 5 favourite movie list!

Singing in the rain - 1952 
Another one of my personal favourites, definitely my favourite musical.  It documents the transition between silent films and the "talkies." Don and Lina have always been paired as a romantic couple in movies, but only one has a voice for movies. They come up with a plan to fake her voice to be able to continue filming! It's a fun lighthearted musical ! If you are interested in the film industries transition from silent films to "talkies" I also recommend sunset boulevard for a more dramatic interpretation. 

Brooklyn - 2015
A more modern movie for you guys! Still set in the 1950s but filmed more recently LOL (its also on Netflix) A young Irish girl moves to Brooklyn on her own, she soon falls in love with Tony, from an Italian family. A tragedy pulls her back home. Its a lovely movie and I think its filmed beautifully, I also LOVE the wardrobe!

Flipped - 2010
Another modern film set in the 1950s. Its meant more for young teens but I think the movie is so cute and I recommend it to anyone, especially if you like the style from the 1950s. Bryce and Julie are neighbours, Julie has always been very obvious about her attraction to Bryce, while he actively avoids her. That all changes when she stops showing interest in him. its lighthearted and warm and it really makes you think twice about judging others. I love how it shows you the same serious of events but from different perspectives. (Also on Netflix)

How to marry a millionaire - 1953 
Three friends are tired of cheap mean so they use various tricks to try to marry 3 millionaires, however true love gets in the way! Its fun and lighthearted! I think Marilyn Monroe is great in this film! 

How to steal a million- 1966
This is hands down Audrey Hepburns funniest movie! A woman (Audrey) must steal a statue from a paris museum to try to conceal her fathers fake sculpture, all with the help of a man who she hires to help her before its too late.  I rarely hear people talk about this movie but its one of my favourite Audrey Hepburn movies! 

Barefoot in the park- 1967
A free spirited girl marries a lawyer in New York, their relationship struggles due to differences in opinion. Jane Fonda is fantastic in this movie!  its so fun and lighthearted and the clothes are also beautiful and wearable! 

Move over Darling - 1963
My favourite Doris Day film! A man remarries after his wife parishes in a plane crash.... or so he thought! He receives a surprise when he takes his new wife on their honeymoon and his old wife appears at the hotel. Its so funny and it shows the relationship between spouses in a lighthearted way! I highly recommend this movie to everyone!
