Woody Allen’s Hannah and Her Sisters is my ultimate Thanksgiving movie. It doesn’t get better than a cozy New York apartment filled with sisters, friends, turkey and a piping hot portion of family dysfunction. Beginning and ending with one family’s Thanksgiving dinner, Hannah and Her Sisters follows three creative sisters and their intertwined relationships with their significant others.

I’m always smitten with Allen’s classic view of New York, especially around the holidays — a little bit quirky, a little bit uptown, a little bit creative and intellectual. This Thanksgiving, I’m going to be far away from home, so I’m getting my NYC fix by any means possible, even if it means repeated viewings of Hannah and Her Sisters. There are worse ways to spend a holiday than visiting with Woody, Mia and Co. Bonus — you may come away from this movie thinking your family is less dysfunctional than ever. — Amy M.
