Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This week we talk about some new to the city stories!
#1 Coyote Ugly
I don’t know what possessed me to do that but I recently rewatched Coyote Ugly. Man, that movie is cringy in so many regards but it is a perfect fit for the theme!
#2 Moulin Rouge
This might not be the first film that comes to mind, but the story begins with Ewan McGregor moving to the artists’ quarter of Paris where he makes some new acquaintances and ends up falling in love!
#3 Coming to America
I still have not seen the sequel and it’s been probably 15 years since I last saw the original film. But when I read the topic for this week, this was the first movie that popped into my head. An African Prince who travels to America for the very first time is not just new in town but new in the country and even new on the continent!
What’s your favorite film with a new in town story? Let me know in the comments!
