What is Your Favorite Film?: Picks from the Hoboken Library Staff

13 Nov

I polled some of our library staff for their favorite films.  They range from family favorites, funny comedies, to serious dramas.  They are the perfect choices for curling up and spending a chilly Autumn night in:

Heidi Schwab, Adult Programming and Outreach Librarian: No movie ever has made me laugh as much as George of the Jungle.  It is a terrific movie for all ages.  Great for a family movie night.

Jessica Sosa, Circulation Assistant: Inception because it is thought provoking with all the many realities that could exist.

Faith Fitzsimmons, Office Administrator: Wizard of Oz I could watch it a million and ten times.  I watched it with my mom and grandmother and now I watch it with my own kids.  It is a great family movie.

Mihaela Colibasu, Circulation Assistant: Requiem for Dream is disturbing but moving film that evokes strong emotions.

Victoria Schwab, Reference Assistant: The Godfather, I’m a big family person.

Susan Flynn, Circulation Assistant: Clueless and Legally Blonde are both terrific funny films that I could sit and watch all day.  I have some of the lines memorized by heart.  You can stream the sequel Legally Blondes on Hoopla!

Lindsay Sakmann, Reference Librarian: What We do in the Shadows is really funny and light-hearted.  Puts you in a good mood.  Borrow this funny vampire mockumentary right now from Kanopy!

Rosary Van Ingen, Head of Circulation: Charade, Audrey Hepburn and Carrey Grant in Paris, what more could you want?

Melissa Medina, Children’s Library Assistant: Rebecca filmed in 1940 and directed by Alfried Hitchcock. It’s a haunting and beautifully filmed psychological thriller.. It’s been one of my favorites since I was a kid and may have been my first introduction to Alfred Hitchcock movies.

Sherissa Salas, Adult Programming Assistant: Pride and Prejudice (the version with Keira Knightly), it was the first time I was introduced to classic English novels in a way I connected to.  It is why I majored in English in College.

Pat Fischetto, Children’s Library Assistant: Under the Tuscan Sun is a touching romance.  I love Italy!
