Team SG speak…

Baggage Claim FR
My favourite film to watch is easily Baggage Claim. It’s directed by David. E Talbert. I must admit, I’m a sucker for a soppy romance film (don’t judge me)and this film ticks all the right boxes for cosy love and cheesy hugs. The story follows American girl Montana Moore who is desperately trying to find her soul mate, however she is faced with different obstacles, which prevent her from finding Mr Right. Montana feels pressured by her surroundings, especially by her mother, who has been married well over three times and as for her younger sister, she’s madly in love with her fiancé and soon kicks rocks, leaving Montana like a sad doubtful loner. But I love this film! It allows the viewer to watch Montana’s personality grow and flourish until she meets the perfect guy. Also, it’s relatable for young women, because as you know there’s always a time in a girls life when she wonders why the right guy hasn’t come along and you end up asking‘What’s wrong with me?’ But patience is a virtue right? Baggage Claim reminds us that all good things come to those who wait and Mr Right is always closer than you think.

Girl Interrupted FR
It has to be Girl Interrupted for me. I know, the title alone makes you assume that this is some kind of chick flick…But it’s SO MUCH MORE!The film was released in 1999 and is based on a true account of the writer Susanna Kaysen (played by Wynona Ryder). It tell’s the story of Susanna’s 18-month stay in Claymoore, a mental hospital during the sixties. After over-dosing on painkillers, she denies that she was trying to kill herself. When Susanna arrives at the hospital she is given a tour by the head nurse(Whoopi Goldberg), and it is instantly clear that she really didn’t belong in there. The other girls were definitely CRAZYbut the friendship formed with sociopath Lisa(Angelina Jolie) really starts to take its toll on her character and personality. It’s emotionally moving. You may say I am strange for putting a film like this on repeat, but it’s the life lessons I learn from it that keeps me coming back. It teaches us about different people from different walks of life and their varying difficulties. It’s not every day we are given an insight into a mental institution and this film does an amazing job of portraying what looks like a very traumatic experience for some people and allows us to empathize with their situations. We are shown how fickle and delicate we are as humans beings and reminded how important it is to surround ourselves with like-minded people who inspire us to be better and do better in our lives. Come on, I know you want to watch it now right?

Tee Cee…
Mean Girls FR

Sometimes I just like some good ol’ trash…You know like Mean Girls. This film serves no particular relevance to anything or anyone, but I can watch it over and over and over again. I know every line, every scene and even the Jingle Bell Rock dance routine…I know, NOT FETCH at all. It’s over a decade old, but still remains a timeless classic and HUGE element of a teen-girls film watching experience. This is THE film to bring to every girls night, sleepover and even force your boyfriend to watch it once or TWICE. It’s all in the title really, it’s about MEAN GIRLS, I mean literally. Raised in the Africa by her Zoologist parents, Cady Heron (played by Lindsay Lohan) thinks she knows all about the “survival of the fittest.”But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 16-year old enters public high school for the first time. Trying to find her place between jocks, mathletes, and other subcultures, Cady crosses paths with the meanest species of all – the Queen Bee, aka the cool and calculating Regina George, leader of the school’s most fashionable clique, the Plastics. When Cady falls for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels, the Queen Bee is stung and attempts to destroy Cady’s social future. Cady’s own claws soon come out as she leaps into a hilarious“Girl World War” that has the whole school running for cover. Does this film inspire me to reach for the stars? Heck no, but it reminds me that being a people pleaser at the risk of losing your integrity is a complete waste of time. If someone does not accept you for being who you are, then simply they don’t deserve the title of friend. Watch it, you won’t regret it.
