With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I’d list 10 good Thanksgiving-themed films (or at least films in which Thanksgiving plays a major part if the majority of the film doesn’t occur on Thanksgiving). My criteria for this list was basically any good Thanksgiving-related film that was theatrically released (that means no TV movies; I’ve already sent my apologies to the Hallmark Channel). This list became more difficult to compile when I discovered that there haven’t been a lot of Thanksgiving-related films (let alone good ones). I searched far and wide but could not get the number that I needed, so I will be presenting the following five films (which are presented in chronological order by year of release):
Honorable mentions: 1992’s Scent of a Woman, 1997’s The Ice Storm, & 1997’s The Myth of Fingerprints.
Which one is your favorite?
