14 Travel Films You Will Love

Because we can’t travel it doesn’t mean we can’t get inspired and immerse ourselves in a good movie. Today we would like to share with you fourteen travel movies you can enjoy while we are all at home, well the majority at home. Movies have the power to captivate our imagination in unique ways, with well-told stories that can evoke the magic of travel, of exploring of being an explorer. Here is the list, with no particular order.

  1. Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)

We all know that during Thanksgiving and any holiday really there is a travel rush leading up to the holiday. This is an old-time comedy with Steve Martin and Neal Page. Steve face a series of travel nightmares on his trip from New York City to Chicago. His flight got canceled due to inclement weather and he ends up sharing his trip home with salesman Del Griffith, played by the late John Candy. This is a great movie to watch regardless of the season.

 

2. The English Patient (1996)

It’s a love story with cinematic shots. Very few movies in the modern era are as lavishly romantic as this adaption of Michael Ondaatje’s Booker Prize–winning novel. The story is about pre-war Egypt and post-war Italy. If you love a good love story, this movie is for you.


3. Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Who doesn’t loves a movie that is based on a real-life experience? We all do. This is the story of Frank Abagnale played by Leonardo DiCaprio, a teenage con artist who manages to avoid the feds while pulling off elaborate schemes. Abagnale famously impersonated a Pam Am pilot and the film plays a lot of vintage air travel footage.

 

4. The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Once we mentioned a movie that is about con-artists, we remembered this one as well. It might be creepy but it happens to be the most beautiful depictions of Italy ever captured on film. The movie includes Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matt Damon as the titular sociopath showing their luxurious-slash-murderous holiday.

 

5. In Bruges (2008)

“Maybe that’s what hell is: The entire rest of eternity spent in effin’ Bruges.” Reluctant Ray (Colin Farrell), an Irish hit man lying low in Belgium’s most picturesque city. It’s a comic mob moview that you will enjoy with its touristy beauty, and some great shots to inspire you to explore (when the virus is over of course).

6. Up In The Air (2009)

If you wonder who does most of the firing in corporate America, characters Ryan does, played by George Clooney.  Companies hire him to fly all across the country to inform strangers they’ve lost their job) who loves life on the road. An obsessive frequent flyer, he’s also about to reach his goal of getting a million miles. In the movie there is a young star, Natalie (Anna Kendrick) who wants to do the firing process via a conference call. It doesn’t turn out well. This is a great movie to enjoy travel life, get inspired and motivated to work harder not to get fired.

7. Midnight In Paris (2011)

10. Spectre (2015)

Art imitates life, but this time it was the other way around. The 26th James Bond movie’s intro scene follows Daniel Craig through a Mexico City Dia de los Muertos parade that didn’t actually exist until enough tourists showed up that the city decided to create one in the movie’s image. As in most Bond movies, the plot crosses a multitude of borders, from Austria to Italy to Morocco, as the MI6 agent fights the global criminal organization Spectre and a perfectly villainous Christoph Waltz.
