Love & Cinema: Valentines Day movie watch list

beyond-the-lights5

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and unless you plan on going to see Deadpool for the romantic aspect (it’s there I swear), there’s not much in the way of romance in theaters. In tradition with years past and in no particular order, here are some of my favorite movies about love, whether it be comedic, heart wrenching or simply a little odd.

About Time

I tend to forget about this movie until it comes up on television and I’m instantly reminded about how much I love it when I turn into a mess of tears by the films end. Disarmingly sweet with some genuinely charming performances by Rachel McAdams and Domnhall Gleeson, the film hits all the right beats of a good romantic comedy. Where the also soars is the father and son dynamic which informs much of the story. Good luck with the dry eye hope by the end of the film where the biggest message is to cherish the little moments in life that make us smile, laugh and be curious.
