There are various aspects of Irish summer and while some of them may be about great outdoors and travelling, there is also a side to the season that demands you to stay in, chill and soak in the works of cinematic masters. For a movie to qualify as a classic, it must be a story told clearly which allows the audience to emphasise with the characters and situations on the silver screen. That is not to say that all great movies need to be simplistic in a sense. Here is a list of five classic movies which you can watch this summer.
1. The Breakfast Club
This classic revolves around five students who have nothing in common and are forced to endure a Saturday detention together under the Principal. Things start to get interesting when the lot begin to interact with each other and find that they actual have so much in common.
2. Mrs. Doubtfire
Another classic, which had everyone in splits in their childhood, starred Robin Williams. It’s a kind of movie which you can watch over and over again and still won’t get enough off it. After going through a divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper in order to stay close to his three children who live with their mother.
3. Sweet Home Alabama
This American romantic comedy was released back in 2002 but many would relate to it. The feeling of going back to your home after years always brings back a lot of memories and make you happy. The story revolves around a New York socialite who returns back home to Alabama in order to get a divorce from her husband but things take a turn.
4. My Best Friend’s Wedding

5. Forrest Gump
The last one on the list, but definitely not the least, Forrest Gump was released in 1994. Not an intelligent man, Forrest Gump is accidently present at many historic events. Although he becomes famous, but his childhood love ignores him.
