First of all: If you are an eligible voter in the US and haven’t voted yet, go do that ASAP. If you don’t know *where* to do that, go to Vote.org, where you can find a polling place and (in some states and Washington, DC) register to vote same-day.
OK, with that out of the way: Hi. This is a bonus newsletter! How are you? Yeah. Me, too.
I have no idea what Election Day has in store for us, but let’s remember to be patient. We need to be mentally prepared for the likelihood that we will not know who won the Presidential race when we go to bed tonight, and no amount of obsessive cable TV watching or social media doomscrolling will fix that. Breathe.
I certainly hope this decision won’t take weeks or months, as some are predicting, but here’s an email to keep in your back pocket for as long as you need it: A list of 25 comforting movies that don’t ask a lot of you, but deliver a good time.
Be strong. Try to take a break from your screens if you can. And good luck, everyone.
P.S. As always, you can support this newsletter with a one-time $3 donation at Buy Me a Coffee.
P.P.S. If a friend forwarded you this list, then hi! This is a free weekly newsletter; normally, I publish short, spoiler-free movie reviews every Friday, and you can subscribe at bit.ly/esjmovies.
