Films to watch while in quarantine

Auteur: YESS International Consultants

The YESS-team likes to share their list of favourite films. As spring has just arrived, the topic of this newsletter is ‘flourish’. We selected those films that are connected to this theme. They touch upon topics like growing up, parent-child relations and love, and teach us something about growth, reflection and self-discovery.

Lady Bird

A coming-of-age film about Lady Bird (a name given by herself), a seventeen-year-old girl in the last year of highschool. It is a film about self-discovery with a focus on the relationship between a daughter and her mother. Lady Bird is a compelling film with a great combination of humour and complexity.
