If you’re trying to dedicate your life to the fabulous cause of watching incredible films constantly and doing nothing else with your life, especially this period of social distancing, then you’ve come to the right place. Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to watch, so I’ve made it real easy for you. You’re welcome.

Here’s my rundown of must-see films that you… uh… must see…for this week!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Hepburn’s portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric café society girl is generally considered to be one of the actress’s most memorable and identifiable roles. Hepburn regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert.

Director: Blake Edwards

Writers:Truman Capote , George Axelrod

Stars:Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal

Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler wrote the screenplay, adapting Peter Maas‘s biography of NYPD officer Frank Serpico, who went undercover to expose corruption in the police force. Both Maas’s book and the film cover 12 years, 1960 to 1972.

Director: Martin Scorsese

Writer: Paul Schrader

When Harry met Sally

The origins of the film were derived from Reiner’s return to single life after a divorce. An interview Ephron conducted with Reiner provided the basis for Harry. Sally was based on Ephron and some of her friends. Crystal came on board and made his own contributions to the screenplay, making Harry funnier.

Plot: Harry and Sally have known each other for years, and are very good friends, but they fear sex would ruin the friendship.

Director: Rob Reiner
