35 Films That Inspire Redos, Reinventions & New Beginnings for 2021


The best rituals serve a purpose. The start of a new year may be a human invention, but it’s also a legit opportunity to assess progress to date and the pathway ahead.


Perhaps more than this, if we let it, it can also be an important existential pitstop to reflect on who we are and who we want to be. Especially after a year like this!


Here are some of my favourite movies (in no particular order) that invite and celebrate redos, reinventions, and new beginnings.
