It’s Friday! Fall is already here, so why not to go for  walk in the park or the forest to see the change of colors in the trees and the whole nature?

It’s also a great time to make plans in family at home: take the blanket and feel the coming fall on the couch. For that, is there a better plan to do than watch a family movie with your kids?

There are movies that you see with your children and you’ll love they remember them for the rest of their lives. You know why? Because they are that special, they teach us valuable lessons!

Timeless movies that parents and kids can enjoy together and feel the nostalgic of the gone childhood and the joy of sharing those moments with your loved ones.

Our recommendation for this weekend is…

The Princess Bride 1987

The Princess Bride


Rate: 8,2/10 (IMDb)


What will tell to your kids: While home sick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him a story called The Princess Bride: A fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman and her one true love. He must find her after a long separation and save her. They must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other.

Why we like it ~ Lesson: Many of us have seen this movie during our childhood so we can translate the messages we’ve received. No matter how insane a problem may seem, there is always a way to tackle it. Know when to focus on the group and when to focus on the one: it’s good to trust in the force of many but also to be confident about your own strengths. Be yourself always. Just because no one has, doesn’t mean you can’t.

Curiosities: All of the main characters are introduced in the first seven minutes of the film. There really was a “Dread Pirate Roberts” (Bartholomew Roberts, also known as Black Bart) who operated in the Caribbean in the early 18th century. He is reckoned by many to have been the most successful pirate of all time. Iocaine powder is a fictional poison.

Now, grab the popcorn and settle in for a magical movie night with the family.
