We asked Sugarloaf Attendees Their Favorite Movies of All Time. See Which Cracked the Top-5
Paintings, sculptures, jewelry and clothing aren’t the only types of arts and crafts that Sugarloaf Crafts Festival attendees enjoy. They appreciate the art of a good movie as well, and we asked festival goers what their all-time favorites are. Here are the five films that kept coming up.
The Devil Wears Prada
This modern classic was a surprise hit when it was released in 2006, but gained acclaim thanks to a fun storyline and great performances. Anne Hathaway stars as Andy Sachs, a smart but naïve college graduate who arrives in New York City after landing a job as an assistant to feared fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). Sachs is quickly introduced to the beautiful but cruel worlds of fashion and publishing, where even the tiniest flaw can bring everything crashing down around you. Streep received an Oscar nomination for her performance.
A romance for the modern generation, this 2003 film follows various Londoners as they deal with the trials and tribulations of love during the Christmas season. From working-class blokes to the Prime Minister, nobody is safe from its effects. Featuring a who’s who of British acting talent, including Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth and Bill Nighy, the movie remains popular thanks to its combination of whimsy and tender moments, with a sense of optimism that remains with you after the credits have rolled.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The oldest movie on this list, the charm of Audrey Hepburn has helped this movie endure since its release in 1961. Hepburn plays Holly Golightly, a Manhattan socialite who publicly aspires to the sophisticated glamor and wealth of the city’s elite, but is a neurotic mess in private. Her world is turned upside down when struggling writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into the apartment next door. Written by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, this madcap adventure maintains a sweetness that has captivated viewers for more than 50 years.
Lost in Translation
Aging movie star Bob Harris (Bill Murray) arrives in Toyko to film a series of commercials, and crosses paths with fellow fish-out-of-water Charlotte (Scarlett Johannson), the neglected young wife of a photographer. The two form an unlikely friendship as they attempt to find themselves while also navigating the culture shock of an unfamiliar land. This Oscar-winning 2003 film features career-defining performances by its lead actors, and strikes a somber-yet-uplifting tone that carries through the touching final scene.
When Harry Met Sally…
This classic romantic comedy from 1989 has achieved the rare feat of being as popular with men as with women. Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) keep bumping into each other as they navigate adulthood, eventually developing a close friendship as they search for love and meaning in their lives. But the question remains: can a man and a woman ever truly be friends without “the sex thing” getting in the way? Gut-busting and endlessly quotable scenes abound as they attempt to find the answer.
