Best Winter Movies to Enjoy this Season

Although spring is quickly approaching, the cold weather is still lingering. On those days when you’d prefer to escape the frigid temperatures and stay indoors, there’s nothing more comforting than enjoying a movie. We love the winter-themed films mentioned below, and recommend viewing them while sipping on a cup of something warm.

Serendipity (2001)

Starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, Serendipity (2001) is a classic, feel-good romance flick. Fate is the main theme in this movie, and viewers are left to wonder if the two protagonists will find their way back together after a magical first meeting. Set during the wintry holiday season, this movie is perfect for watching on a cold evening.

Winter’s Bone (2010)

Jennifer Lawrence fans will appreciate this early work in her career. Winter’s Bone is a heart-wrenching drama that follows a courageous teenage girl on a quest to locate her criminal father to save the rest of her family. This film is emotional and heavy, so it’s ideal for watching on an evening when you’re searching for a moody thriller.

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet star in The Mountain Between Us (2017). This story of two strangers’ reliance on each other to survive extreme elements after a plane crash makes for a riveting winter watch. If you enjoy adventure thrillers, you won’t want to miss out on this tale of resilience.

Just Friends (2005)

Just Friends (2005) is a classic story of unrequited romance between high school best friends. More than a decade after Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) is turned down by Jamie Palamino (Amy Smart), he returns to his hometown as a successful record producer. This romantic comedy is lighthearted and may leave you feeling nostalgic for days past.
