While we love a good Harry Potter or Twilight marathon, it may be time to change things up. On Feb. 21, people in America celebrate President’s Day, which is a holiday that honors everyone who has served as President. Whether you’re a die-hard history buff, want to travel for the three-day weekend, or are excited about the potential day off from work to shop, you can spend the day on a good ol’ movie marathon — but with a Presidential theme to it.
Hear us out: a lot of Presidential movies are quite dramatic, often making you cry or feel some type of way. It may be a lot to binge at once, but what better way to spend a day off than with a themed movie marathon?
From Oscar-winning performances to modern classics, Presidential films do pretty well at the box office, gaining millions of dollars in revenue and quickly becoming staples in our Amazon Prime lists. Whether it’s a behind-the-scenes look at a cataclysmic world event or an exaggeration of a possible illicit affair, there are a lot of juicy details the history books don’t teach you. So why not get enlightened and learn something new from a critically acclaimed film on your watch list?
Now, we found 11 of the best films about American Presidents and their families — all of which can be rented or bought through Amazon (except for one Netflix Original you may not have heard of!) Check out our top picks below.
