That day is upon us all, Black Friday... We are needing a little retail therapy (or some kind of therapy) this week as we prepare for the shopping experience that comes before Christmas. After shopping, you might need to put your feet up and enjoy a good film.
This week we sent Reel Dialogue’s Russ Matthews out into the shops to find the best films that take place in the stores.
- Mannequin, 1987
- Miracle on 34th Street, 1947
