Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in "Lost in Translation"

Although many of these films are about the joys of traveling, we have selected them for the gorgeous cityscapes and impressive natural scenery. Even if you can’t jump on a plane just now, you’ll feel the thrill of escape with these wonderful travel flicks.

Eat, Pray, Love

Julia Roberts heads to Rome, India, and Bali to reawaken her soul. Eat, Pray, Love is the perfect way to discover the beauties of traveling from the comfort of Netflix.

Lost In Translation

Not much happens in terms of plot in Lost In Translation. Instead, the film is an artistic presentation of Tokyo and gorgeously captures the atmosphere of Japan.

Into The Wild

Have you ever dreamed of running away and escaping the things of man? Into The Wild explores the dream of entering the wilderness so you don’t have to.

The Beach

The Beach shapes up to be more of a travel warning than a travel tale, but the shots of the paradise beach in Phi Phi, Thailand will take you to another world.

Hector and the Search for Happiness

The beauty of this film is that you can take note of the lessons Hector learns from his travels without having to venture outside of your own front door.

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine is a timeless classic about a family who takes an unusual road trip and learns how to seize the day and embrace their authentic selves along the way.


Cinematically, Lion is terrific. The story itself is wonderful but the shots of the Indian scapes are magnificent.

In Bruges

Bruges is a quaint little city in Belgium that looks as if it is the setting of a fairytale. The film is charming for many reasons, but the authentic cityscapes add a lot to its timeless appeal.
