Again, the annual Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner. I seemed to have smelled the appetite Thanksgiving turkey and other delicious food. Needless to say, I would tuck into the wonderful Thanksgiving food and have a very enjoyable celebration with my family. Also, I’m sure I would have the chance to watch some wonderful Thanksgiving movies together with my family again, as watching the best Thanksgiving movies has been a part of our family tradition since we bought our first television decades ago. Here I would like to recommend some Thanksgiving movies that I have watched in the past years and thought worth watching. Maybe you would get one for your family.
Home For The Holidays
Jodie Foster's directorial debut gets it just right: dinner with the family can be a nightmare -- and also hilarious. The stellar cast includes Academy Award winner Holly Hunter, Robert Downey Jr., Claire Danes, and Anne Bancroft.
The Ice Storm
Oh, the Seventies in suburban USA, when married couples had key parties to beat away the boredom and despair. Ang Lee adapted Rick Moody's novel in 1997, and the tragic climax comes down on Thanksgiving Day. Starring Kevin Kline, Joan Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and young rising stars Tobey Maguire, Elijah Wood and Christina Ricci.
Hannah and Her Sisters
Woody Allen's 1986 drama about three sisters is one of his very best. The film's set piece is Thanksgiving, where Hannah's (Mia Farrow) clan gathers together in a tremendous Central Park West apartment for the holiday celebration. The black maid polishes the silver, Mia's mother drinks too much and plays the piano, hearts are broken and mended in startling ways. Barbara Hershey, Michael Caine, Diane Wiest, Carrie Fisher, and Woody Allen also star.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Two men must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, every vehicle, including ane, train and automobile, they have tried is out of work. It is funny story about friends and family. It is very suitable for your Thanksgiving night.
Miracle on 34th Street
What is Thanksgiving for, if not to get hyped up about the coming of Christmas? Nowhere is that more joyously clear than in the 1947 classic Miracle on 34th Street, starring Mareen O'Hara, John Payne and the super adorable, six-year-old Natalie Wood. The film starts at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and heads straight into the venerable department store. Let the shopping begin!
Of course, there are still many other wonderful Thanksgiving movies suitable for the holiday, like A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, What's Cooking?, etc.
