The last days of the year are perfect to watch a good movie together with the whole family: here are three titles to enjoy in streaming.
The Christmas vacations of 2020 we will remember for a long time: they are the ones we dedicated to relax on the couch and have fun inside the walls of the house. In fact, the anti-county rules recommend us not to go out and assemble in clubs, restaurants or outdoors.
Unfortunately, we can still spend pleasant evenings in the company of a good movie to watch together with the whole family. The streaming platforms offer us catalogs full of alternatives: feature films, TV series, documentaries and shows of all kinds suitable for an audience of all ages. Among the different proposals there is also the Netflix one that in these days has made available original films and great classics. For those who are looking for something exciting and funny to watch right in these days there is an embarrassment of choice. To avoid spending the evening looking for a title without concluding anything, here are three movies to watch on Netflix perfect for the holiday season.
Holidate: Christmas romantic comedy
We start with Holidate, a movie that tells the story of a boy and a girl who hate the holidays and especially the obligation to be accompanied by a partner to be presented in the family. During family dinners they always find themselves alone, but at one Christmas they get to know each other and decide to pretend to be a couple during the end of the year festivities. They decide not to bond and just share their hatred for family holidays, but eventually discover that something deeper has been born between the two of them.
Holidate is a Netflix Original romantic comedy full of exciting moments and twists perfect to watch on the holidays. It is directed by John Whitesell and stars Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey as Sloane and Jackson, respectively.
In the Shoes of a Princess: here we go again!
The film is a sequel to 2018's In the Shoes of a Princess. The film stars noble Margaret Delacourt, who is bored with her life and decides to switch identities with her partner, Stacy, a young pastry chef. The two girls will spend the holidays in the shoes of their doppelganger and better understand what they want from life.
The film is directed by Mike Rohl and stars actress Vanessa Hudgens, who plays both the noble Margaret and Stacy but also the evil Fiona, also identical to the two girls and ready to act as a party pooper.
The Prom: musical comedy by Ryan Murphy
We come to the third board, The Prom, the musical comedy directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee, Eat Pray Love, Ratched).
The film is among Netflix's December new releases and is inspired by the musical of the same name by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin.
It tells the stories of four Broadway actors struggling with problems related to their careers: Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep), Barry Glickman (James Corden), Angie Dickinson (Nicole Kidman) and Trent Oliver (Andrew Rannells).
Some out of compassion and some to boost their public image, the actors decide to help one girl achieve her dream: high schooler Emma Nolan can't attend prom with her girlfriend Alyssa because of a school ban. However, their impromptu and unselfish activism ends up causing further damage. Despite all that, the Broadway foursome pulls out all the stops to give the two girls an unforgettable evening.
