5 Inspiring Movies To Watch On Netflix This Weekend

5 Inspiring Movies to Watch on Netflix This Weekend


1. Good Will Hunting. "We get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds..." That is one of my favorite quotes from this incredible film, and if you have ever seen this movie, you will know why Robin Williams won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor as Dr. Sean Maguire. You can't help but feel all of the emotions while watching, and at the end you will want to chase your dreams and stick it to the man.

2. Mona Lisa Smile. Ain't nothing like a good girl power movie. This one takes the cake. I love the message this movie delivers that you don't have to live within a specific mold. The storyline deals with women in the 1950s being born and bread to fill their role as a housewife, but Julia Roberts broadens their horizons. Nobody should or can tell you what is right for your journey in life, and it's important to stay true to your goals and dreams.

3. Fried Green Tomatoes. Oh, Idgie. She is full of so much spunk and fire, and truly an incredible character. This movie inspires me because it speaks about how to stand up for what is right and just, even at the risk of your own life. Idgie and her friends are fearlessly loyal and fight for the truth no matter what.

4. The Iron Lady. Ok, I will admit I haven't watched this one yet, but that is changing in approximately 24 hours. In my opinion, Meryl can do no wrong, and her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher BLOWS my mind. I do also have to admit that I do not know much about Margaret Thatcher other than she was the Prime Minister of England in the 80s and she was conservative. Obviously, my aim with this movie is to become more educated about her life, but I find it inspiring that she held such a powerful position as woman in that time. Are we noticing a theme here? No wonder Netflix always gives me suggestions for "Movies with a Strong Female-Lead." ;)

5. Forrest Gump. I would be remiss if I didn't include ole' Gump on the list—run, Forrest, RUN! Easily one of Tom Hanks' top three roles in his impressive acting career. I am sure you have all seen it, so consider this a public service announcement that Forrest Gump is indeed on Netflix and you should go watch it to kindle those flames of motivation and triumph over life's greatest obstacles.

I loved Mona Lisa Smile! It was weirdly one of the things that made me think going to an all-women's college was something I was actually interested in. Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my faves too...although I've totally found that even if I own a movie on DVD, I'll watch it on Netflix as soon as it's offered there, ha!

Dude, I am totally the same with the watching it on Netflix even if I own it. I always thought I was just extremely lazy, and I am glad I am not alone, haha. ;)
