Movies are an excellent way to see someone’s creative depiction of life’s issues and effectively examine a variety of feelings. A good movie makes you think, feel, learn and develop insight to similarities in your life.
Couples who watch relationship-centered movies and then discuss them afterwards are more likely to still be together after three years, according to a study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.
Below are a few of my favorites.
Stand By Me
Certainly a classic worth watching again. Youthful adventure and the power of friendship.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Jim Carey and Kate Winslett, this film in a comedic and serious way explores the intricacy of relationships and the pain of loss.
