The Year s 10 Best Movies for Entrepreneurs

Jon Favreau, who also wrote and directed the film, stars as Carl Casper, a head chef fired after a video of his spat with a food critic goes viral. He decides to start a food truck and reignite his passion for cooking. This movie is unique as it involves an entrepreneur starting a business. However, it conveniently glosses over the challenges of funding and starting. It also highlights the role of social media in today’s business landscape and the desire for individuals to be their own boss.

"Begin Again" (July 2014); The Weinstein Company

Starring Mark Ruffalo, Kiera Knightley, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, "Begin Again" is an intimate, upbeat look at the modern music industry. With full musical numbers throughout, it endearingly represents the ingenuity and collaboration required to bootstrap a project. Like "Chef", it also offers an interesting look at how social and new media have helped independent artists/entrepreneurs compete with entrenched businesses. At times, the movie gets a little too cutesy, but if you focus on enjoying the music, you should be able to pacify your inner critic.

The Wind Rises (February 2014); Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures

In his last film, Hayao Miyazaki tells the true story of Jiro Horikoshi, a Japanese aerospace engineer who designed the WWII Zero fighter. This beautifully animated film chronicles Jiro’s determination as he fought through obstacles (lack of technology, the 1923 Kanto earthquake) to pursue his passion. Kids will lose interest in this story, but children were not the intended audience. Entrepreneurs and business owners will relate to Jiro as he pursues knowledge, innovates, learns from failure, and follows his dream.

Wild (December 2014); Fox Searchlight Pictures

Based on the New York Times bestselling memoir, Wild (starring Reese Witherspoon) demonstrates lean planning in action. Without prior experience, 26 year-old Cheryl Strayed over-packed her backpack and embarked on a 1,100 mile hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. She had to learn and adapt with every failure, test her assumptions, and find a way to succeed on her journey. Witherspoon’s performance has earned Oscar-buzz, and the story is sure to captivate you.

Interstellar, released in November 2014 by Paramount Pictures, offers a profound connection between space travel and entrepreneurship. In the movie, there is a line that encapsulates this connection: “We used to ponder our place in the stars, but now our concerns revolve around our position on the ground.” Some reports suggest that the entrepreneurial spirit in America is waning, but Interstellar, at its core, celebrates humanity’s ability to dream. The act of launching a rocket into space mirrors the act of starting a new business; both endeavors require pushing beyond our limitations, pioneering, innovating, and dreaming. If you need a reminder of why these pursuits are important, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is a must-watch.

Unbroken (December 2014); Universal Pictures

Another New York Times bestseller adaptation, the story of Louis Zamperini is unique. Directed by Angelina Jolie, Unbroken is an inspirational biopic of one of the most courageous and determined men in recent history. I don’t want to spoil too many details since the movie has only been out since Christmas day, but let me just say that Louis’ story should be an inspiration to any entrepreneur or business owner (or anyone) who has the guts to keep going in the face of adversity. Interstellar may remind you to dream, and Wild may remind you to learn from failure, but Unbroken will remind you to never stop trying.

The Lego Movie (February 2014); Warner Bros.

Ignore the criticism that this movie is part of an "anti-business" agenda. Anyone involved in starting, growing, or managing a business will understand the core message of this animated film: creativity is awesome, and you need to embrace what makes you unique. As an entrepreneur, you can draw comparisons to innovation, product differentiation, and other business concepts, but don’t try too hard to make the analogies work. The point is to have fun, and I guarantee the song, "Everything is Awesome," will be stuck in your head for days.
