Kaitlin's Quarantine Watch List

During these uncertain times, it is easy to get caught up in our everyday stress. It is understandably hard not to feel anxious about the future as a society, as well as personally. It can be uncomfortable not to follow our usual routine, but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you are isolated alone or with loved ones, it is still possible to connect with others despite the physical disconnect. Luckily, movies allow us to dive into another world—a perfect distraction from our current life. It is safe to say that there is no better time than now for us to escape the chaos even if it’s just for a little while.
