Healing Fest 2015

Matt and I decided to curate a little film festival for our coworkers. Our theme was Healing, and so we have put forth the following selections:

Good Will Hunting: Hey, remember Minnie Driver?

Ordinary People: See Donald Sutherland before he was old!

50/50:  Seth Rogen will teach you how to use cancer to your advantage when picking up girls in 50/50

Postcards From The Edge: Now with 20% more old lady thigh!

The Lookout: See Chris Pratt before he was famous and when he was played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

As Good As It Gets: Carol the waitress, meet Simon the fag.

Reign Over Me: 9/11 + Adam Sandler = do I have your attention?

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly: “A stroke of genius” says Matt.

Life As A House: “A movie more emotionally manipulative than my mother-in-law” says Jay.


What’s your pick?

    Healing in laughter and healing in therapy gave us some good and funny films.
    My favorite one off the top of my head was “The In laws” with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin. Although I may have mentioned I like “Monster in Law” with Wanda Sykes following Jane Fonda around and saying the funniest things under her breath. “Anger Management” with Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholas didn’t get a good rating but it included some humorous healing. Way back in the past, a younger Jack did well in a serious and funny “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” I liked your list very much. We both had Jack N. 🙂

    No clear winners for Healing Fest (so many write-ins on the ballot!) but I think it was well-received, and it’s always nice to have an excuse to re-watch some old favourites.
