Five Movies To Keep You Entertained During Quarantine
With Covid-19 forcing many people to stay home, a lot of us have found ourselves looking for something to do. I have found that curling up with a cozy blanket and pillow and turning on a few of my favorite movies has really helped me fill some of my empty time. When I was a teenager, I can recall my mother always asking me to watch movies with her. Often drama or romance movies, we sat and watched in silence, letting the movies draw us in. So close your curtains and get comfy. Here are five movies sure to keep you entertained (for a few hours anyway).
