My 10+1 'Summer' movies for August.
Besides the uncertainty of our times, seasons still come and go. And while some of us are taking their chances traveling around the world and enjoying the powdered gold sunshine, others are still in self-isolation waiting for the better days to come. The presence of summer could have not been any stronger these days though, so accompanying the heatwave I am sharing with you a selection of movies from my 'summer' movies list that bring out to me this bitter sweet summer sensation. 'Summer' has a very personalised meaning for each one of us, so watch keeping an open mind.
Whether you are currently enjoying long evenings under the hot Mediterranean sun, or you are melting under the rising 34C temperatures around London, I hope you will find some inspiration on the following list. There is a little bit of everything! Put your feet in a bucket of cold water or lay flat in your breezy terrace arranging a projector screening night with your loved ones and some dry martinis and ... enjoy!
