Inspiration Folder: Newsies

Remember when I used to do inspiration folders on the reg? (ICYMI: here's three good ones from Old Sweet Song past Grease 2, sprinklers and the word awesome) Well, needless to say it's been a minute. And when a Newsies Inspiration Folder popped in my head I had to double check that I hadn't already done one because well, come on. I have seen this movie no fewer than six billion times (yes, I have also seen the musical which is good but just not as good). The soundtrack is amazing. And don't you worry it most definitely still holds up. Wasn't I just walking down 23rd Street on a crisp, sunny fall down feeling like nothing could get me down as I blasted "Seize The Day" through my earbuds. Why yes, yes I was. The dancing! The drama! The romance! What is not to love about this film? And back in the day I remember being utterly blown away by just how dreamy Christian Bale was. My fourteen year old brain just couldn't handle it. Also the kid from Big turned out to be pretty hot too. Although, I love a head of curls.

Should we watch it tonight? I think we should. Now is the time to seize the day, after all.
