Best Romantic Movies for Couples
Picking romantic films to watch can be difficult, especially if you do that as a couple. Some people think a romantic comedy is usually cheesy, and they are right. However, here we present a list of best romantic movies that are not only true classics but will be for sure appreciated by those who are not into this kind of films.
1. A Room with a View
This movie is an adaptation of E. M. Forster’s book, and it cannot be underestimated. It tells a story of one young woman’s emotional and intellectual growth and liberation. It also features Julian Sands as the charming son of broad-minded Mr. Emerson. Plus, it describes etiquette, polite society, and scandal. What else do you need for a great evening?
2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This is one of those rare beautiful movies where Jim Carrey takes on a dramatic role. Paired with the talents of Being John Malkovich writer, the movie transcends the genre of a melodrama and creates its own unique, complicated world inside people’s heads. In addition to love, the themes of the film include the nature of memories, our sense of identity and the value of pain. I might not be the easiest thing to watch, but it will certainly touch you in a special way.
3. In the Mood for Love
Famous for its stunning soundtrack, this film is less of a story and more of an experience. The colors are truly stunning and create a sense of sensuality and nostalgia that helps you feel and breathe with the characters. Being a story of two neighbors with unfaithful spouses, this movie describes all complexity of relationships, so if you are looking for a simple romantic comedy at the moment, this might not be for you.
4. Before Sunrise/Before Sunset/Before Midnight
If you are looking for what to watch for a whole weekend, this trilogy revolving around an American man and a French woman might be exactly what you need. These films catch them at different stages of their lives: first, when they are desperately young, then as adults, and finally, a decade later, as a couple, happily living together and raising kids. The romance in the film is omnipresent and yet not in your face, which appeals to many.
Hopefully, this short list will alleviate your boredom and help to spend some quality time with your SO.
