A Beautiful Movie Every Person Should See :) 

I love truly inspirational movies, especially ones that have the power of shifting my perspective in some way. I saw a movie like this last night. It's a documentary called "Happy" (2011, directed by Roko Belic) and can be found on Netflix streaming, Amazon, etc. The movie explores the topic of happiness by traveling around the globe to uncover the common denominators of happiness across many different cultures. I highly recommend this beautiful documentary for people of any age, including children and teens.


Gary's favorite holiday movies 

Here's a list of 5 of my favorite inspiring holiday movies (or movies that at least are set during this time of year):
  • "Serendipity" - romantic, inspiring, moving, better for adults, contains my favorite scene ever! (you can ask me after you've seen the movie), have tissue handy 
  • "Love Actually" - fantastic story line and acting, outside-the-box romantic comedy showing the many faces of love
  • "About A Boy" - wonderfully unique story line and great acting, character development through the movie is beautiful to witness
  • "Elf" - hilarious, surprisingly well-written and acted, Will Ferrell is brilliant, thoroughly enjoyable and a great family comedy
  • "Miracle on 34th Street" (1994 version) - beautifully filmed, great acting by everyone - especially the young Mara Wilson (Susan), a wonderful family movie that always confirms my belief in Santa :)
