Annual Thanksgiving Movie Festival Question

Posted at 5:57 PM on November 16, 2007 by Euan Kerr (9 Comments)

For the last few years our family has had a tradition of going away to the cabin, armed only with a mountain of food and a few classic movies we feel we should have really seen but never have.

Over the years of our Thanksgiving Film Festival we have seen everything from "To Kill a Mockingbird" to Alexander Payne's "Election" with "Dogtown and Z boys" in between.

Every year I ask for suggestions from you the reader.

This year is a little different because Sarah-the-19-year-old is away at college, and Malcolm-the-16-year-old is bringing a couple of pals. With this radical change in the testosterone levels, and with a nod to the recent Joe Strummer film, we have already decided on Julien Temple's "Earth Girls are Easy."

Also as a way of pounding a little respect for his Scots heritage into the poor kid we're bringing Bill Forsyth's "Local Hero."

But what else? What classic movies do you think will hold the interest of a small group of teen males and their doting parents in a post-turkey haze? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
