    Can anyone recommend new (or even older) films that just stay with you? I'm talking about movies that make you feel good while you're watching them and then make you feel that way long after the credits have rolled. They're the type of movies that you'll tell others, "You have to see this one." For me, "Strictly Ballroom," "Lars and the Real Girl," and "The Visitor," all films I've seen in last few months (yes, I'm behind on movie viewing!) were like that, but it's hard to find such gems. It seems the DVDs we rent/download are all mostly disappointing. There must be intelligent, feel-good, quality films being made!

      What a great question. I love to pass on good books, that I feel are insperational. So why not do the same in film.
      Mine may be ones you have seen, but just in case, I would love you to see...

    "Out of Africa" is an excellant movie. of course, if you're drawn to that sort of entertainment.
