Films To Watch During Coronavirus "Social Distancing"

A Time To Kill

Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey

This movie, filmed in London, tells the story of a Mississippi lawyer who defends a black man, charged with the murder of his ten-year-old daughter’s rapists, as the Ku Klux Klan seeks revenge.  It’s a powerful and thrilling movie, with amazing actors.


Thandie Newton, Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock

Directed by London-born Paul Haggis, Crash is a complex movie interweaving 5 seemingly unrelated stories into one plot that shows how your life affects the lives of others, even if you don’t know them.  It’s shockingly powerful, and dark, but still inspiring.

The Breakfast Club

Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald

The Breakfast Club is always a great movie, and one character, who is arguably the best, is played by a London native, John Kapelos, in the role of the smart-mouthed janitor.  The movie covers Saturday Detention for 5 high school students from different cliques and how they learn their similarities can overcome their differences.

Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2

Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas

If you’re traveling with kids, the Camp Rock movies are sure to be a hit.  Both were filmed in Ontario, and tell the story of a teenage girl who dreams of being a singer and manages to attend a high-profile singing camp, where she makes friends and falls in love.  It’s cute with catchy music that’s sure to drive you insane on the way home, but the children will love it.

You don’t have to be bored just because of a pandemic – enjoy a fun movie night with one of these Ontario-related movies!
