Spring is in full bloom and even though we're excited for some warm-weather road trips, we're still gonna have plenty of date nights with some deep dish pizza, a floral cocktail, and our favorite movie. More than ever before, BIPOC and women are playing pivotal roles before and behind the camera, and we can't wait to watch all 12 of these springtime movies.

For the Romantic
The To All the Boys I've Loved Before Trilogy: Stream on Netflix
These movies are full of everything we need this spring: romance, adventure, and lots of pastels. They're based on the trilogy by Jenny Han, and feature women in both directing and screenwriting roles.
Emma takes it upon herself to meddle in the love lives of everyone around her. Gwyneth Paltrow (1996) and Anya Taylor-Joy (2020) star as the flirty and devious title character in this vibrant Jane Austen comedy.
For the Girl Boss

For the Old Soul
Funny Face: Stream on Amazon Prime
This Audrey Hepburn classic follows bookstore employee Jo Stockton after fashion photographer Dick Avery takes her photo and believes she could be a successful model. If 'musical' and 'Paris' don't scream spring, we don't know what does.
Anne With an E: Stream on Netflix
Adapted from the book series from L.M. Montgomery, Anne Shirley gets adopted by an elderly brother and sister but her quick temper and imagination always seem to get her into trouble. The natural lighting and Anne's love of nature hooked us instantly. (It counts as a film if we watch it all in one sitting, right?)
The Secret Garden: Stream on HBO Max
After she moves into her uncle's home in the Yorkshire Moors, Mary Lennox discovers a secret garden brimming with more flora and fauna than we could dream of. Based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett and directed by Agnieszka Holland, this movie is a springtime essential.
