It’s a really sweet and engaging movie. I could empathise with 10 year-old Duncan. Well, it’s not only adults who go through situational and psychological problems in life. Duncan, is facing his own things and while handling his life problems luckily finds Owen, who comforts him and helps him rekindle belief in himself. Owen too, learns few important lessons in life, like sometimes we grown-ups need to. This movie is bound to make your heart melt.

Juno is a rebel and misfit and has an infallible sense of sarcasm. Well, we don’t expect the kind of courage and sensibility she has, from a teenager. It’s a coming-of-age story which most certainly is not just about teen pregnancy but also about adult relationships, love, parenting, friendship, and believing in oneself. It also doesn’t fail to make you laugh and get emotional. I’m sure going to watch it again soon.
13. Bridget Jones Diary
Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/UVRpfP
Trailer on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYPK3jPZkYI
Quirky, imperfect and spontaneous Bridget Jones is a real fun to watch. Although, I’d love to categorize the movie as a romantic comedy, it’s got more. Although Bridget’s life is far from perfect, she doesn’t fail to take control of it time and again. She’s cheeky, funny and a bit of a mess, and no doubt ends up having two of the most eligible bachelors courting her.
14. He’s Just Not That Into You
Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore

Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV7bvxRQGkc
All in all, it’s a relationship movie. You are going to come out wiser, get several perspectives, and understand diverse relationship situations. The movie has 8 leading characters, each of them going through a relationship struggle. It’s a light-hearted movie possibly intending to tell us to be okay if things aren’t working out the way we want them to. Bottom line is it gives me hope.
