Back to school season is in full swing! The smell of new books, school supplies sale blowups and “welcome back!” signs plastered on every marquee sign on school lawns have taken over as we close up this exciting chapter of summer. With all this commotion, it’s inevitable to get excited about going back to classes again. Now the possibilities are endless! With a brand new schedule and exciting upcoming events to look forward to, it’s time to begin a new chapter in our lives. The sky is the limit! But as we all know, a new start isn’t always easy. As the time has come to get ready to go back to school, these three movies, according to you, will make it a whole lot easier.
# 3. Clueless
In this coming-of-age comedy film, who can resist the animosity of the well-intentioned but slightly superficial Cher as she navigates the ups and downs of being at the top of the high school social scene? With her matchmaking schemes and soul searching as she struggles to make it through the year, it only spells a recipe for trouble. With the help of her friends, old and new, Cher manages to take the year by storm in this quirky and fun modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved Emma.
#2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
In the film where it all began, our favorite trio is launched into the magical wizarding world of school. Juggling between classes, being sorted into their houses and saving the world, the three have their hands pretty full; after all, Hogwarts is full of surprises. Chris Columbus brings to life J. K. Rowling’s beloved story about the boy who lived and touches our hearts through each of the characters, expressing how we all have it in us to be brave, smart and loyal to those we truly care about.
#1. 10 Things I Hate About You
The #1 spot goes to none other than 10 Things I Hate About You. In this American rom-com Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger and Jodeph Gordon-Levitt steal our hearts as they navigate through the complications of dating, prom, risky wagers and falling in love. This modernization of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew encompasses the wit, charm and spontaneity to get us all into the back-to-school spirit.
