10 Movies to Inspire You to Travel Before You Die
Whether you’re looking for relaxation, adventure, or a chance to broaden your horizons, the settings of the following 10 films will inspire you to take a vacation.
1. Midnight in Paris
Woody Allen’s tribute to the City of Lights sees an idealist dreamer of a writer, played by Owen Wilson doing his best Woody Allen impression, visiting Paris with his spoiled fiancée and accidentally discovering a magic taxi cab that can take him back in time to the 1920s, when Paris was arguably at its best. Wilson’s character falls into the happening literary circles of the era, hanging out with Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein. Marion Cotillard plays the whimsical and unhinged muse to Picasso that Wilson falls for, and who also helps him understand his own romanticized but unrealistic ideas about the past. Seeing Paris at its best, as filmed in delicious detail by Allen, is enough to make any literature lover start packing his or her bags.
