Thanksgiving is an under-represented holiday cinematically, primarily because there’s not a real “Thanksgiving season”. It’s a one day affair. But also because the tradition on Thanksgiving is football. That’s what on TV screens across the country.
These are my three favorite Thanksgiving pictures. There are other films that peripherally deal with Thanksgiving (Broadway Danny Rose, Tower Heist…etc.) but these are legitimately about the holiday.
