With Boston on track to set a record for the longest stretch of days below 20 degrees, we’ve decided to look to pop culture for some insights into how to deal with these frigid temperatures. But we’d like your help.
What movies, TV shows, and books come to mind when you think of grappling with the cold? There may be onscreen lessons about survival (“The Revenant”), or endearing moments that warm your heart or make you sob (“Titanic”), or scenes that make you laugh out loud (“Grumpy Old Men”) — or a book that captures a child’s sense of wonder (“The Snowy Day”).
