5 of my favourite films

5. St. Trinians

Everyone loves the rogue schoolgirls with a passionate love for their school. I am certainly no different.

4. Legally Blonde

Both the original and the sequel hooked me when I was about 10. I have watched these films countless times and every time I find myself in fits of laughter over Elle Woods &co.’s adventures.

3. Notting Hill

I only saw this film for the first time last year, and honestly, I can’t believe I didn’t see it sooner. I truly love bookstores and love stories, so a love story in a bookshop just made my life complete. And plus, we’re all suckers for chick flicks aren’t we?

2. Paddington

When I constructed this list I told myself not to include any book-to-movie adaptions. But really, Paddington Bear is more than just a book or two and I know of no one who can resist the young bear and his marmalade. His antics never fail to lift my spirits.

1. About Time

There aren’t the words to describe how much I adore this film. You may have guessed from some of my previous posts that I love to marvel at the odd, yet amazing, way in which we live out our lives. The exploration of that theme and the depiction of our complicatedly simple lives combined with a Richard Curtis script makes this film truly special to me. It captured my imagination and mind in a way that no other film has and all I can do (without rambling on about it for ages) is to urge you all to watch it. Some of you may just think of it as another chick flick, but others may share my opinion. I hope you find yourself to be the latter.
