Sometimes a good movie is all you need to escape from the monotony of social distancing. Darren and I found a few hours this weekend to enjoy a few excellent films that I think you’ll love. These wonderfully campy movies have held up through time thanks to their great morals. Keep reading to learn why you need to watch these Fun Flashback Movies: Hairspray (2007) and Sordid Lives.
Tell Me About Hairspray (2007)
This was probably my favorite movie as it features a theme very close to my heart, inclusion. I champion diversity in my life and I love movies with a message of being confident in yourself and shinning your light. If you like the same messages, Hairspray is the perfect movie for you!
In a nutshell, Hairspray is the delightful tale of a young woman learning to accept and love herself. Along the way, she learns an appreciation of diversity and empowering others to be themselves.
Featuring hilarious performances by a cross-dressing John Travolta and the steamy Zach Effron, this is a remake that might be better than the original. If that is even possible.
Tell Me About Sordid Lives?
Sordid Lives is another hilarious, feel-good movie revolving around acceptance (you’re probably noticing a theme). You get to see a glimpse of Olivia Newton-John that you never knew existed and you will fall in love with the affable protagonist played by Leslie Jordan.
With a dynamite cast and relatable story, this movie will have you appreciating the loving relationships you have. Especially during a time like this, thinking about who you love and who love you is a cathartic experience.
