Films that will make you believe in love.
For some, important days like the Valentine’s Day or birthdays of your partner are all about chocolates and flowers. But there is a certain set of people who say it’s about watching movies that make you laugh, cry, rage, sob and ultimately think in the undying power of love again. These are the must-see classic movies that guarantee to mess with your heart in the best possible ways.
Starting our list with the big blockbuster “Titanic”. The movie one way or another took a five-day romance on the ship a doomed ocean liner and twisted it into one of the most stunning, sweeping love stories ever to delineate the silver screen.
From the instant Jack and Rose lay eyes on one other from their different segments of the boat, their psychotic chemistry is not possible to ignore. No doubt the love story burns intensely in Rose’s heart for past 84 years.
The soundtrack “alone” is 100 percent definite to make you bawl. If love were a sound, it would be “My Heart Will Go On” in Celine Dion’s voice.
- Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen’s classic is on every list of most appreciated books as the romance between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet is simply remarkable. So too is this stunning 2005 big-screen adaptation.
The movie tells the tale of a prejudiced rich dude and a prideful poor girl who fall madly in love with each other even as every bone in their body’s protests. After continuous twists and turns they finally end up together, fundamentally creating the pattern for every love/hate film relationship thereafter.
- Becoming Jane
Talking about the Pride and Prejudice, many historians now consider the novel was stimulated by author Jane’s real-life prohibited romance in the 1700’s.
In that era she wrote the book, Austen penned a letter to a friend regarding flirting and dancing with a poor Irish lawyer named Tom Lefroy. There is not much more to go on historically other than an admission from Tom later in life that he had fallen in boyish love with the author so this movie fills in the blanks. And yes, the feels. The film turns Austen’s passing state into a heart-wrenching romance you will not be able to forget.
- Shakespeare in Love
Great writers in fact make immense subjects for romantic dramas. In the very well known Shakespeare in Love gives William Shakespeare a relationship of his own.
This movie portrays Shakespeare as a struggling actor/ playwright who is out of thoughts and looking around for a muse. That is when he meets up with Viola de Lesseps, an upcoming stage actress who was a fan of Shakespeare’s plays but have to pose as a man to follow her dream since women are not allowed to act. The two have an immediate connection, and the comedy of faults that follows ends up inspiring Romeo and Juliet. Once again, this love story is not true, but it will make you perceive Shakespeare’s most well-known play in a whole new light.
- The Fault in Our Stars
If you’re in the mood for a film that will make you ugly cry, this is it.
OK, I’m already weeping.
How could a movie turn such an uncomplicated, unromantic word into the most gut-wrenching expressions of love yet to be expressed on screen?
From the moment Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace Lancaster clumsily make an eye contact at their cancer support group, we know it that their correlation is going to be exclusively heartrending. And even if the cloud of Hazel’s deadly diagnosis hangs over their promising romance throughout the film, the couple’s innocent chemistry and humorous banter almost makes you disregard they are destined for a touching ending.
