Have some extra time on your hands for catching up on classic movies?  ImmigrationProf continues its series of upbeat movies to watch in the time of stay at home orders and the age of COVID-19.

Back to the Future (1985) is a classic worth watching.  The movie is summarized on IMDb as follows:

"Marty McFly [Michael J. Fox], a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by a slightly mad scientist [Christopher Lloyd]. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love - so he can get back to the future."

The cast:

Michael J. Fox ... Marty McFly

Christopher Lloyd ... Dr. Emmett Brown

Lea Thompson ... Lorraine Baines

Crispin Glover ... George McFly

Thomas F. Wilson ... Biff Tannen

Claudia Wells ... Jennifer Parker

Marc McClure ... Dave McFly

Wendie Jo Sperber ... Linda McFly

I have pleasant memories of this movie, as it is the first one that I saw with who would later become my wife.
