An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving
Actors: Jacqueline Bissett, Helena Joy
A great Thanksgiving movie that reinforces the messages of being grateful for what we have, remembering those who have helped us along the way, helping those less fortunate than us, forgiving those who have wronged us, and being sorry and trying to make reparations for the wrongs we have done.
Winnie the Poo - Seasons of Giving
Actors: Gregg Berger, Brady Bluhm, Peter Cullen, Jim Cummings, Scott Dreier
Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Rabbit set out to search for the perfect ingredients for a festive Thanksgiving feast, and finally to Christmas, and a surprise visit from a special friend.

Dutch picks up his girlfriend's bratty son from prep school for a road trip back home for Thanksgiving. Needless to say, things go wrong in a National Lampoon style way when they lose their car, hitch a ride with hookers, and a night spent in a homeless shelter.
Home For the Holidays
Actors: Holly Hunter, Anne Bancroft, Robert Downey Jr., Charles Furning, Dylan McDermott
A Chicago-based single mom who--on the day before Thanksgiving--loses her job and is informed by her daughter of the latter's intention to surrender her virginity while on a weekend-long affair. Jodie Foster directed this film about the typical dysfunctional family during the holiday season and she brings both a sensitive understanding and a full blown sense of humor to this holiday film.
The New World
Actors: Colin Farrell, O'orianka Kilcher, Christopher Plummer, Christian Bale, August Schellenberg
A classic true tale of Pocahontas and her relationship with adventurer John Smith set during the turbulent beginnings of America. The film focuses on the clash of differences between two civilizations and how in the mess of differences two people are able to connect and see the beauty of each other. A poetic, dream like movie.

This is not your normal Norman Rockwell's American family gathered around the perfect Thanksgiving dinner.
The House of Yes
