While we’re all social distancing inside, we asked our editors which movies they’re watching to keep that wanderlust alive. From Crazy Rich Asians to The Motorcycle Diaries, here are the movies that make us want to get back out there and book a flight.
“The Trip, The Trip to Italy, and The Trip to Spain are must-see viewing. You’ll want to go to every adorable inn and restaurant that Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon visit, but mostly you’ll wish you were with them—dying laughing at their dueling Michael Caine and Roger Moore impressions and wisecracks.” —Ellen Carpenter, editor in chief
“When I saw The Motorcycle Diaries, in which Gael Garcia Bernal plays a young Che Guevara motoring around South America, it made me want to quit everyday life and just hit the road.” —Justin Goldman, deputy editor
“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, is the platonic ideal of a wanderlust-inspiring movie. Every frame of Iceland (which also stood in for Greenland) is like a tourist brochure.” —Nick DeRenzo, executive editor
“Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. The Vienna and Paris environments, the Ethan Hawke/Julie Delpy duo, ahhh those were some good ones.” —Jessie Adler, photo director
“Crazy Rich Asians gave me a million and one reasons to book a flight to Singapore. From street hawkers to historical buildings, and even the airport, every shot will have you adding to your must-see list.” —Sydney Otto, assistant digital & social editor
