Everyone once in a while, a film will come along that makes the audience incredibly jealous. These movies stem from a genre that I would call the "beautiful house I'll never be able to own" movie. Essentially, the success of these movies depends upon whether or not the audience would give up their lives if only to inhabit these worlds for a few hours
With the help of set decorators and art directors, these films have the unique ability to transport the audience from their mundane, daily lives to luxurious locations they've never been before. For just $14.00, audiences are able to visit the villas of Italy, the french châteaus of France, and the mansions of Hollywood. There have been many movies that highlight exotic landscapes and extravagant houses, but as the years progress, only a few remain embedded within our minds. Below are 10 of the most extravagant movie houses in which we all dream to live.
9 Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)
8 North by Northwest (1959)
7 Out of Africa (1985)
6 Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (2003)
5 Melancholia (2011)
4 Summer Hours (2008)
3 Gosford Park (2001)
2 Sleeper (1973)
1 Harry Potter (2001-2011)
As if there was any doubt, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is the most extravagant movie house of all time. Who in their right mind wouldn't want to go to wizard school, play quidditch, and have magical powers? The films that are based on J.K. Rowling's novels unlock our imagination, dare us to dream, and remind us of cinema's potential to take us to places we've never been before. Hogwarts may be fictional, but it has become a fully formed reality in the collective dreams of audiences around the world.
