Here's a topic for the collective, what is your feel good movie? Or movies? What makes you feel great when you watch it? I have three, Muriel's Wedding, The Birdcage and Priscilla Queen of the Desert!
Recently I was watching Muriel's wedding and the scene where Toni Collette and Rachel Weiz sing Waterloo was on, my heart soars, I feel so affirmed and positive, full of life when i watch it! I love Toni Collette, she's a great actress and so alive. When I watch her as Muriel I want to get dressed up and go to an Abbaesque gig!
I know it's tacky, I know it's low brow, but when i watch these films I'm reminded of some of the beautiful things about being a human being, love, hope and happiness! These are three qualities that I admire in other people, it's hard to maintain these in the face of adversity, but I try!
