Groundhog Day

"What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?"

A classic comedy that we always come back to, arguably with slightly dark undertones but one worth watching in a lighthearted manner for the comedy value alone! Bill Murray’s character is stuck living the same day over and over, a feeling many of us are all too familiar with. 

My Life as a Courgette

The French-Swiss stop-motion animated comedy-drama film that will melt your heart. Visually beautiful, heartwarming, frank and affecting. Although dealing with the toughest of subjects, abused youngsters in a care home, it shows how they find strength through solidarity.

A positive message explored in the most affectionate of ways this story is about a journey through life's ups and downs will offer comfort and solace when you're down in the dumps.
