8 Movies For Your Next Girls’ Night In
Yes, we know that girlfriends always have something to talk about, but wouldn’t it be nice to switch things up a bit for your next girls’ night in, and have a movie night? Trust me, friendships have evolved into deeper bonds over movies. Watching a movie and actually having a conversation rather than shouting above the beat at a club might be just the thing for a girls night in.
So, if you’re all excited about a night of comfy PJs, fully blankets, tubs of popcorn, and some sister love, interspersed with hysterical laughter, and empathetic tears, look no further. Here are 8 movies for your next girls night in:
1. Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion
Starring Lisa Kudrow (a.k.a. Phoebe Buffey) and Mira Sorvino, this movie is a must-watch if you are getting together with your school gang! This is nostalgia done right.
2. Bad Girls
This one is a heavy dose of women fighting for their emancipation in a world that finds it all too easy to treat us as props. Tune in to this movie, if you want to watch four women turn into fugitives to get their freedom from a brothel.
3. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
Lara Croft, played by everyone’s favourite Angelina Jolie, was what every young girl, and young boy (yes, that’s right) wanted to be back in early 2000s. That should be reason enough for you to watch this one!
4. Mr and Mrs Smith
An action-packed love story which brought together one of our favourite couples in Hollywood! Need we say more?
5. Thelma and Louis
This 1991 movie, the story of two friends, was unprecedented in Hollywood. Criticised for “toxic femininity” and “deranged violence,” this film showed a side of women that we accept only in men, and brought to light the hypocrisy of the world we live in! And all of this, the film manages to achieve in a light-hearted, fun manner which will have you in giggles all night.
6. The Heat
How do you break the glass ceiling? By banding together with other women! But, that’s just one of the things that this movie teaches us. It shows sisterhood in its many shades
7. Girl, Interrupted
Based on a book, this Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder starrer is an emotional roller coaster. You may take away a lot of things from this one, but look out for the solidarity of the women in Claymoore!
8. Frances Ha
She’s awkward, she’s funny, she’s confused, she’s hopeful, AND she’s got her bestie by her side!
