15. The Color of Paradise (1999)
Most of Majid Majidi’s movies are family dramas but they can be a bit too simplistic and naïve, at times. However, ‘The Color of Paradise’ would probably remain one of his best and undoubtedly one of the best family dramas ever made. The film tells the story of a blind boy who is brought home on vacation by his father who considers him to be a burden. Majidi’s direction is precise, straightforward and yet very impactful as he beautifully captures the sheer innocence and charm of children. It’s beautifully written, extremely well acted and is sure to move you to tears by the end.
14. Hugo (2011)
Martin Scorsese’s venture into the adventure/fantasy zone wasn’t particularly remarkable but nevertheless ‘Hugo’ still a charming affair. It works partly because you could see Scorsese’s heart all over it, his unconditional love for cinema. ‘Hugo’ tells the story of a boy who is desperate to find a key that would get his father’s automation to work. He befriends a girl and together they set out on a journey that enlightens them about life, dreams, ambitions, tragedy, desires and the magic of cinema and how it has the power to change people’s lives. ‘Hugo’ is certainly a film that deserves more love than what it gets.
13. Empire of the Sun (1987)
