Nostalgia in Film


Films can give us dreamy or weird fuzzy feelings. Like when you smell a certain kind of flower, or feel that warmth from the seasons changing (cue Future Islands). Have you ever watched or re-watched a certain film, and all those ooey-gooey feelings you used to have suddenly came rushing back? Nostalgia has a funny way of evoking strong feelings in all of us, especially when we watch movies.

Listed below are a few films and screenplays that might rev-up all those dream like feelings.

The Land Before Time

One of our most honorable mentions goes to The Land Before Time. It’s a real tear-jerker, and who doesn’t love dinosaurs?! We could not find the script online, but the dialogue transcript is listed below.
