My Favorite Movies After a Long Week

Whenever I've had a really long and exhausting week I like to curl up in bed and put on one of these movies. They are not mentally taxing and they all feature strong female leads juggling the different aspects of their lives. Even though they are movies and real life isn't a movie blah, blah, blah, they give me a little hope that I can keep everything together.

Jane Fonda and a extremely preppy Robert Redford take on marriage and the New York Housing Market

Great actors and well written lines that actually hold some truth. Also Ryan Gossling's abs if you're into that sort of thing.

New places, new loves. Directed by Nancy Meyers and Scored by Hans Zimmer, who both do an amazing job.

I love Meryl. She is a goddess. Also written  and directed by Nancy Meyers with music by Hans Zimmer. Nancy Meyers  can do a rom-com like no other.

Marylin Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall on the hunt for billionaires. I like that part of this movie is set in Maine, because who doesn't love Maine? On Netflix!

Audrey Hepburn as a princess experiencing "normal" life in Rome with Gregory Peck. I wish that was my "normal" life. On Netflix!

 Reese Witherspoon doing that whole southern thang. Having lived in Alabama during college, this movie makes me a tad bit homesick.
