Storyline: Mia Thermopolis has just found out that she is the heir apparent to the throne of Genovia. With her friends Lilly and Michael Moscovitz in tow, she tries to navigate through the rest of her sixteenth year. (summary source: link)

Why I love it: This movie reminds me so so much of my childhood. I watched it with my sisters almost every weekend which almost drove my dad crazy 😉 The movie is about Mia, who is living a normal teenage life until she finds out that she’s actually a real princess. Now, she has to learn from her grandma how to rule a country which isn’t simple at all. The movie is so funny and even though the plot might sound very cheesy and unrealistic, you HAVE to watch The Princess Diaries. It’s SO good.

Storyline: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all. (summary source: link)

Why I love it: I haven’t read the books yet, so I didn’t really know what to expect but let me tell you: that movie blew me away with its cuteness. From the first second on I fell in love with all characters, their humor and the storyline. I really hope they will film a second part! Who agrees???

Why I love it: Oh, The Longest Ride is by far my favorite Nicolas Sparks movie ever. It’s a movie which I watched over and over again with my sister and we could watch it another 100 times. To be honest, I don’t know what else to tell you about it because in my opinion it’s the best romance movie you will ever watch 🙂 Just telling!!

Why I love it: I actually don’t know if The Intouchables is popular somewhere else than Europe. If not, it definitely should be! This movie portraits the friendship of Philippe and Driss so real and perfect. It’s actually based on real story which makes the whole movie even more special. The Intouchables will make you cry and laugh and will leave you with this satisfied, happy feeling and the quiet confirmation that there is still kindness left in this world. I promise, you will love it.
