Two Netflix favorites

A while ago I had a couple of days when I  came home after work and felt tired, stressed and, well, overwhelmed. Best way to handle that? Go for a run you say? No. Comfort food and TV? Yes. Here are the two movies that made those days a lot better:

Hector and the search for happiness
This a sweet one. The title says it all, pretty much. Hector is a bored psychiatrist that decides he needs to make some changes in his life. This takes him on a journey all over the world where he meets of various kind and asks them what makes clear them happy. What I liked best besides xxxx was the beautiful scenes, the somewhat slow pace and the clever combination of film and illustration. And yeah, there are some good points about happiness in there, for sure.

The perks of being a wallflower 
Good movies doesn't have to leave you happy. This one made me cry. Not because of any great feeling of recognition but because the story is so well told and intense. The main character is Charlie, a 16 year old boy. On the first day of school he doesn't have any friends. Then he finds some. I didn't expect it to be so heart wrenching. I loved all of the main characters. Just see this one if you haven't already. It's good.
