Thanksgiving Movies

Although Thanksgiving has come and gone, we don’t have to stop celebrating. Here at the Willow Hill Blog we’ve compiled a list of movies that capture the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, as well as holidays in general. Enjoy sitting back in your apartment with a bowl of popcorn as you watch these movies in your Puyallup, WA apartment.


A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

“Peppermint Patty invites herself and her friends over to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, and with Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock, he attempts to throw together a Thanksgiving dinner.”


Free Birds

“After years of fruitless warning of his farmyard brethren of the coming Thanksgiving doom, Reggie the Turkey finds himself spared as the annual Pardoned Turkey. However, Reggie's easy life is disrupted by Jake, a fanatic turkey who drags him along with the insane idea of going back in time to make sure turkeys are not part of the first Thanksgiving. Through foolhardiness and luck, the pair manage to take an experimental time machine to do just that. Now in 1621 at the Plymouth colony, Reggie and Jake find themselves in the middle of a turkey clan's struggle for survival. In doing so, their preconceptions of the world and themselves are challenged forever in a conflict from which the world will never be the same.”


An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving

“Inspired by a short story, Isabella Caldwell is a high-society woman in late-1800's New York. When Isabella’s estranged daughter Mary becomes ill and is too proud to ask her mother for assistance, Mary's daughter, Tilly, takes it upon herself to contact her grandmother and plead for help. Isabella's arrival causes an upheaval in many lives, but may also lead to reconciliation within the family.”


Planes, Trains & Automobiles

“A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with an obnoxious slob of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion.”
