1990 - Groundhog Day

Man oh man do I love this film.  I’m stuffing packages of films and watching movies in the background, so I’m treating myself to a marathon of all my favourite films.  I like films that have a hint of magic to them and this is one of the best that there is.  It’s a great concept - a man having to live the same day over and over again until he gets it right - the comedic beats, the darkness, there’s not much out of place here and I dare say it’s a masterwork for Harold Ramis who we recently lost.  Bill Murray is in top form and Andy McDowell is so beautiful and delightful here.  If you’ve never seen this film please do me a favour and get around to it - you won’t regret it.
