Sometimes, even though you know spring is right around the corner, the temperature drops and it starts to feel like winter is never going to end. If that sounds like you, take heart. We’ve picked out the best movies to get in the mood for spring even when the weather isn’t cooperating. Hold on, warm days are on the way!
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping – sounds like a perfect day to play hooky. And that’s no problem for Ferris Bueller because he knows exactly how to get away with it. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a timeless 80s classic that still holds up incredibly well today. With a heaping dose of charm, Matthew Broderick plays the titular lovable scamp in what became a career defining role. In contrast to his usual heavier fare, director John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful) also struck a different chord emotionally with this film. Just right for a little escape from gray, rainy weather.
Will Bloom has been at odds with his father Edward for three years. But now that Edward is dying, his son wants to make one last attempt to reconcile. What he wants is to finally get the truth about his family history. His whole life, he has been fed nothing but tall tales about the man and his life. For instance, he claimed to have left his hometown as a young man with a giant, fought killer mythical creatures in a magic forest, found the perfect city and left it, lived with a werewolf in a circus, enchanted his beloved wife Sandra with 10,00 daffodils, won World War Two virtually single-handedly, and spent an entire night on the bottom of a lake. A bit more on the sentimental side, this spring movie is sure to lift your spirits.

Thankfully, her gardener Matthew happens to know about a few special plants in urgent need of Grace’s green thumb. Fresh, green plants, new beginnings. What more could a spring film have to offer?
