NOTE: This list only has films that I have seen in 2019. Apologies if a particular film isn’t on this list.
Instead of writing a review, I thought of doing something a little different this time. So, today I’d like to celebrate friendship and showcase some of the best from the year gone by. The following list is in chronological order. Let’s begin
Billi & Nai Nai – The Farewell
Lulu Wang’s touching portrayal of a family dealing with illness finds its soul in these two.
Jimmie & Montgomery – The Last Black Man In San Francisco
A story about identity finds itself held together with two different kinds of people who nonetheless care for each other.
Michael & Andy – Paddleton
This low-key film shows us that true friendships sometimes means just being there for the other person.
The Brothers – Kumbalangi Nights
They might be at each other’s throats but when the time comes, they’ll have the other person’s back.
MC Sher & Murad – Gully Boy
There is a strong case for having Moeen and Murad here but MC Sher’s guidance and friendship is what transforms Murad into Gully Boy.
Zak & Tyler – The Peanut Butter Falcon
This is simply one of the sweetest friendships I’ve seen in a long time, it is the definition of feel-good.
Amy & Molly – Booksmart
A hilarious coming-of-age film that beautifully showcases the bond between these two and gives us memorable moments to boot.
The Bean Bag Boys – Good Boys
This is pretty much Superbad for a new generation but the adventures these three get to, is going to be the among the funniest you have seen in a long time.
Rick & Cliff – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood…
Rick Dalton’s career may be going up and down but he’ll always Cliff Booth by his side.
Ephraim & Thomas – The Lighthouse
Through the film, they move away from being friends but for a brief period, they are the merriest of buddies and that is a joy to behold.
Carroll & Ken – Ford v. Ferrari
The two men push each other to reach greater heights giving us some exhilarating and touching moments.
Losers Gang – Chhichhore
The losers teach us a valuable lesson that life is not just about winning, there is more to it.
Destiny & Ramona – Hustlers
From being a mentor to a friend, these two go through the whole roller-coaster of emotions and take us along for the ride.
Frank & Jimmy – The Irishman
This has to be the most unexpectedly touching friendship from last year as we see these men grow from strangers to BFFs.
Schofield & Blake – 1917
When it comes to friendship we do certain things even if they do not make sense, we just do them because we care.
Until next time, bye.
