Christmas Movie Recommendations

ELEGANT SURVIVAL CHRISTMAS MOVIES

Some Recommendations:

 

Beautiful Christmas imagery and a touching, amusing story make Fred Claus a magical, hilarious and romantic family film.

A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote is a delightful time-capsule about the human condition, starring Patty Duke, Piper Laurie and Jeffrey de Munn.

Music of the Heart is based upon the true story of a violin teacher in Harlem. Starring Meryl Streep, it is one of those New York movies that realistically portrays the plight of talented people living there, and ends with a stunning, triumphant scene. The extremely talented Meryl Streep learned to play violin for her part in Music of the Heart.

You Were Never Lovelier

Rita Hayworth, Fred Astaire, Adolphe Menjou and Xavier Cugat star in the charming 1942 romantic comedy, You Were Never Lovelier
