#5 Pieces of Easter
If you are looking for something that goes along the lines of a journey-type family movie, then Pieces of Easter is the one for you. It stars Christina Marie Karie and Jefferson Moore (also the director). While it isn’t one of the famous movies, it is an enjoyable one.
The plot of this 2013 independent film revolves around a pompous female executive who has to seek the assistance of a farmer to reach home in time for Easter. During their rocky journey, the two lead characters develop feelings for each other. Do check it out!
Yes, we know that you won’t find many references linked to Easter importance in this movie, but it has a bunny! Zootopia is one of those movies that you can watch with your family anytime. Today being the Easter Sunday just makes watching (or rewatching) this movie more fun.
In Zootopia, rabbit Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin’s voice), a police officer joins forces with fox Nick Wilde (Jason Batemen’s voice), a con, in order to make the city of Zootopia a safe place.
P.S. It also features several other mammals!
