Angel at My Table | IMDB 7.5 | 1990 Drama /Biography
This is a true-life story of New Zealand author, Janet Frame. A brilliant, but clinically shy child, Janet was mistakenly diagnosed as schizophrenic. The movie, based on her series of memoirs, follows her life as she uses her creative gift to cope and gradually come to terms with all that she endures. As a fairly introverted creative myself, this one really struck a chord.
Broadway Danny Rose | IMDB 7.4 | 1984 Comedy
In his attempts to reconcile a lounge singer with his mistress, a hapless talent agent is mistaken as her lover by a jealous gangster... This is a funny, charming Woody Allen comedy where he stars alongside talented actress Mia Farrow. And the ending....OMG...but, I won't give you any spoilers!
The Red Balloon | IMDB 8.2 | 1956 Comedy/Drama
This short indie film manages to be positively charming with barely any dialogue. A balloon with a mind of its own follows a little boy around the streets of Paris. The colorful imagery, magical storyline, and gentle humor made my night...and apparently I wasn't alone since this is now considered a European cult classic.
