If you're anything like me, this weather has you daydreaming about sunny days and summer vacation--making it the perfect time to watch summer-themed movies while wrapped up in a warm blanket on the couch. One of my favorite summer movies, The Sandlot, a coming-of-age story about a group of neighborhood kids who spend the summer of '62 playing baseball, always makes me think of a time when summer vacation felt like FOREVER. We don't have The Sandlot in our collection (it is available to resident borrowers through MeLCat) but we do have another summertime movie that gives me that same sense of nostalgia: Stand by Me. Though a bit darker than The Sandlot, this Stephen King classic definitely evokes a summery mood and would be a perfect fix for those winter doldrums.
Here are a few other summery suggestions:
