Though it may be awhile before we can properly luxuriate in the springtime, there's plenty to get us by until we're there. Here are some of our favourite movies that get us thinking about the spring season and all its wonders.
You've Got Mail
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are business rivals who unknowingly strike up a romance online in this rom-com classic.
This film is always a joy to return to, especially the flower-filled ending that makes springtime feel like a wondrous time.
One of our favourite Tim Burton films, Big Fish is not just an ethereal fantasy tale that will tug on your heart strings, but the cinematic shots and that flower scene make this a feel-good spring watch.
10 Things I Hate About You
In the U.S., proms and dances are a spring ritual, so naturally most of our beloved teen flicks are set during this time.
This particular modern retelling of Shakespeare's The Taming Of The Shrew is an all-time-favourite that boasts many a picturesque scene of sunny days and sprawling greenery.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Toni Colette star in one of the many adaptions of the 1815 Jane Austen novel about charming young girl who tries to interfere with everyone else's life but ends up learning a lot about her own.
Set in the English countryside, there are plenty of rolling foothills and wild flower gardens to make you want to recreate a little bit of that action in your own abode.
Memoirs Of A Geisha
This film, based on the best-selling book of the same name, won three Oscars, so we don't have to tell you that it's good.
But if you didn't already notice, the stunning visuals of cherry blossom trees and pristine gardens—complete with roaming peacocks—add to it being a springtime must-watch.
The Spring Fling Dance in Mean Girls was the pinnacle of high school prom moments on screen.
We will never forget the iconic dress/back brace combo rocked by Regina George, and we'll also never forget Amy Poehler, as her mother, posing behind her.
Sofia Coppola has made a career out of her distinct eye for mesmerising aesthetics. And this pastel dream of a film is certainly a seasonal hit.
Under The Tuscan Sun
This feel-good flick is the perfect spring watch. Not only are we blessed with the stunning visuals of Tuscany, but the overall theme of renewal and finding oneself is a humble reminder that spring cleaning does not just have to apply to our things...
Based on the true (and rather tragic) love story of John Keats and Fanny Brawne, Bright Star is full of scenic shots of bluebell fields and untouched flora. Perfect for fans of a good period piece.
In this whimsical remake of the 1964 hit, nanny Mary Poppins is back to flood our screens with songs, killer outfits and, you guessed it, tons of lush springtime scenery.
Greta Gerwig's Little Women was not only a smash hit for the film, but the aesthetics and delightful setting definitely played a roll in our obsession (as well as Timothée Chalamet in that vest).
The Great Gatsby
Baz Luhrmann's 2013 reimagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel was an epic film with an enormous budget.
While the film ends on a darker note, Gatsby's attempts at wooing Daisy provide us with some enviable floral moments.
The Sound Of Music
Based on the real-life story of the Van Trapp Family singing group, we're suckers for the film's musical numbers (that are deeply etched into our minds from childhood).
Julie Andrews brings a renewed vigour for life to the family, and the film is all around heartwarming with breathtaking landscapes of the Austrian alps.
