Thursday Movie Picks: Cannes Favorites

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. Head over to her site and join in! This week's themes is favorite movies that played in Cannes. Like my Sundance entry, I consulted a list to see which ones I've seen, and it turns out not many. Here are my picks for the week.

Meet Me In St. Gallen

Meet Me in St Gallen is set in the span of three days, but in varying years. The main characters, Jesse and Celeste meet in a coffee shop, and their conversation started when Celeste points out that they have the same names as the characters in the movie ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever’. The film has nothing to do with the Andy Samberg/Rashida Jones film, but rather it focused on the connection of two people as they stumbled on in life and love.

Thursday Movie Picks: Characters Making a New Start

Thursday Movie Picks is a weekly event hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. Head over to her site and join in! This week’s theme is about characters making a new start.

I’m going with a beginning, middle, and end for this theme. Here are my picks for the week.
