10 Thanksgiving Films

Holidays are, fundamentally, work. The rewards particular to each unique family's response and belief in meaning. Some things are sacred within the families. The particular spin on how we bond over the Advent Calendar, the oft-repeated joke from the same uncle at the menorah's lighting, who will first fall asleep post-turkey. Movies have become, for many families, a way to come together. To bond when our words are not precise enough, when what's needed is merely just being together. It gives us moments. Here are ten popular favorites must-sees: 

10. 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving'

9. Ratatouille

8. Spirited Away

7. What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

6. The Fantastic Mr Fox

5. Dutch

4. Planes, Trains and Automobiles

3. Scent of a Woman

2. Pocahontas

1. Addams Family Values

Thanksgiving is often trying. Large food obligations, large appetites, large differences in our tastes. The bete noire of the cynic is the caustic genius of the family. Even when the film is fundamentally a lesser work, the communal act of watching, has a positive effect on the mind and soul. On the relationships between people. Open up your heart, put the feet up, take a breath and watch a movie together.
