Comfy - movies that feel like a hug.

It's a Tuesday. I'm home sick with a tummyache. I was allowed to take the day off school. I'm in my mum's bed, propped up on her big European pillows and tucked in tight. I have soup with buttered toast cut into thirds - my mum calls them 'soldiers'. I have the remote in my hand and am searching through channels for a movie. The one I choose is easy to consume, and grounds me there in my mother's room.
Blankets, warm socks, rain outside, mugs of tea or hot chocolate. These are comfy movies.
