From Groundhog Day to Good Will Hunting, Redditors have begun debating about which movies helped them.
Movies are capable of making audiences feel plenty of different emotions, and one of the most important is an appreciation for life. For example, in Searchlight’s latest drama Not Okay, Zoey Deutsch and Dylan O’Brien star as two pretentious influencers whose selfish actions allow the audience to appreciate the simplicity and morality of their own lives.
It’s not easy for a film to completely change an audience’s perspective on life, but it’s certainly possible and happens more often than the world would expect. The whole point of cinema is to reframe life from various different perspectives, so it’s not surprising that so many stories resonate with people constantly.
Groundhog Day (1993)
Harold Ramis’ Groundhog Day is not only one of the best-written comedies of the 1990s, but it also features plenty of insightful philosophy that makes its story infinitely more moving. It’s so much more than a rom-com, but rather a deep exploration of the purpose of life.
