You’ve come to the right place, friend: now’s the time to gather your loved ones around the television for a good ole fashioned feel-good movie marathon.

They may not celebrate Thanksgiving in Asia, but that doesn’t mean the continent’s not stuffed to the gills with cinema devoted to family-fueled warm fuzzies. And luckily, here at AsianCrush we’ve got an amazing collection of award-winning movies curated specifically for occasions like these. Here’s a list of our favorite movies to watch with the family, all available to stream for FREE right here on our website and apps.

Pecoross’s Mother & Her Days

The Nightingale

This indie road comedy about a man reconnecting with his bratty granddaughter was selected as China’s submission to the Oscars, and with good reason.
