Movie Mandates: Sophie’s Choice (Feel-bad Movies)


Welcome to Movie Mandates, a review show in which sibling cinephiles Andrew and Keleigh force each other to watch movies according to a monthly theme!  You’ve heard of Feel-good Movies?  Well, March is all about Feel-bad Movies!  Stories that may be genuinely great but they leave you feeling hopeless, dirty, and alone as you sit naked in your shower stall under a cold spray and gently cry yourself back to some semblance of comfort.  There are many such films to pick from but whichever one we watch, the result is going to be the same.  It’s real… Sophie’s Choice!

See what we did there?
