Date night usually ends up consisting of a movie and a pizza to go along. Now, we all know what a daunting task it can be to pick a movie, that both of you are going to enjoy. But no need to worry anymore! The movie Gods have heard your silent prayers. I am going to give you a list of 3 romantic movies that you can watch with your significant other. Titanic, Pretty Woman, Kate and Leopold, The Lake house, are all notable movies of this genre. However, time we stepped out of the box a little. So, let’s get rolling!
1. Sleepless in Seattle
A 1993 classic, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, is still one of the most watched movies. The movie is a beautiful portrayal of longing, to have that ‘butterflies in your stomach’ sensation, when you finally fall in love. It showcases that compatibility is not always key to a romantic fulfilment. The story showcases how a connection of hearts, can even draw two strangers together. Distance truly never matters, in matters of the heart.
2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Jim Carrey proves that he is a master of his craft and can go beyond comedy, in this 2004 cult favourite, opposite Kate Winslet. Love doesn’t always have happy endings. Neither is anyone perfect. This movie highlights this very same idea, with a touch of science fiction. Despite having their memories of each other erased, it shows how love is about not giving up on the other person and finding a way to work things out.
John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale put up a laud worthy performance in this bitter sweet tale of romance. A couple meet one fateful night and are immediately drawn to each other. Yet, it seems that fate has different plans in store for them. They are separated on that very night. They spend years, searching for each other, convinced that if they are destined to be with each other, nothing can keep them apart. The question remains, ‘What does destiny have in store for them?’
