You can see our gallery of top New Year’s movies here — but most of them are about pivotal New Year’s scenes, not entire movies devoted to New Year’s. Alex Holdridge’s acclaimed indie film In Search of a Midnight Kiss from 2008 is one film that revolves around New Year’s Eve. It’s a funny, quirky, romantic, and real story that I hope will become the It’s A Wonderful Life of Dec. 31 for years to come. If you haven’t seen it, it’s perfect viewing as you ponder the start of a new year — but be warned, you might get an urge to look for your midnight kisser on Craigslist!
