Things I Love Friday & Canadian Film Day 2020


Happy Friday, friends!

Did you know Wednesday was National Canadian Film Day? NCFD Is an annual day to celebrate Canadian movies by watching a great Canadian film.

If you weren't able to celebrate on the day of, here are a few good options to watch today:

Maudie: The true story of iconic Nova Scotia artist Maude Lewis, who had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

The F Word: A Canadian movie starring British Daniel Radcliffe and American Adam Driver, and a story about love, friendship and self-discovery.

The Trotsky: A high school student believes he is the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky and starts a union at his father's factory. Things get more interesting from there.

A few I haven't seen yet but am planning to: Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance (about the Oka Crisis, which was part of many millennials' lifetimes), There's Something in the Water (a documentary about environmental racism, helmed by Ellen Page) and The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom (a coming of age story in which Dolly Parton actually has a cameo!).
What's your favourite Canadian film?

Here are some other things that made me happy this week:

♥ "I Love Me" by Demi Lovato ♥ Seafood pizza and crab-stuffed pretzels ♥ Mine and Samuel's love spell ♥ Pink flowers ♥ Doing something creative every day ♥ Gender feels ♥ Feeling good  about my body because I see someone else who's gorgeous and fat feeling amazing about their body ♥ Lizzo ♥ Kicking BDD's ass! ;) ♥ Incredible notes from people I admire ♥ Buying a new book ♥
