When you think of Valentine’s Day, what comes to mind? For me this year, it is Wes Anderson. Yes, that’s right, dear reader, I’ve decided that there is no reason why my Valentine’s Day cannot be centered around the quintessentially quirky Anderson aesthetic. As much as I love The Notebook (and, trust me, I do love The Notebook), there is something about the way that Wes Anderson captures love that is special. I could write you a thesis on it, but I won’t. Instead I will let you watch the movies for yourself, but it would be cruel to let you do so without some guidance. So without further ado, here is your (not-so-)official guide to a very Wes Anderson Valentine’s Day.
Wes Anderson movies would not be Wes Anderson movies without the soundtracks that so perfectly fit the stories being told. Here are some of my favorites for the hopeless romantics and lonely hearts.
Even if you’re snuggled up watching a movie on Valentine’s Day, you can still think about what you’ll be snuggled up in. Wes Anderson’s films are always quirky and nostalgic, something that goes hand-in-hand with the perfect cozy movie-watching look.
There you have it, your official guide to a hot Valentine’s date with Wes Anderson.
Until next time…
