Broke? No ideas for going out? Not a problem, it’s always nice to spend the most romantic day of the year at home (whether you’re single or not). Staying at home is not that terrible after all and even less so on this day. All you need is your significant other half, if you have one! Nevertheless, there’s always so much to do at home, and one of the most beautiful things that you can do is spend some quality time together, and a film is always a perfect excuse for that. So here’s a selection of some of the most romantic films to snuggle up to and watch on this very special day…
1. Moulin Rouge!
It will be the perfect choice if you want to enjoy a classic love story between a dancer and a poet, with a little bit of the best music. It’s always nice to sing together; even more if Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor encourage you to do so with their fantastic interpretations! It will make you feel even more in love with life (and your partner).
2. The Prince Of Tides
Do you prefer to see something of extraordinary quality? The Prince Of Tides shows a good romance, with an extraordinary cast; everything made by the great Barbra Streisand. So, either if you want to enjoy a good, but different, love story or just to make your partner to have a good cry to hug them…then this is a perfect option.
Who doesn’t eat chocolate on this day? Well, that’s what this film is about: a light and sweet love story that will put a smile on your faces. Anyway, this is more than just a romantic comedy with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp; it’s a mouth-watering display of all kind of chocolates, so it’s worth a try to watch it eating chocolate instead of popcorn.
4. Pride And Prejudice
Is there any girl that hasn’t wanted to be Keira Knightley in this film? No doubt that this is a very English choice…one of the most famous love stories of this country and should be a perfect option. This one is especially for those men who still don’t know what to watch with their loved one. Just choose it, it’ll be worth to see how your love thanks you!
5. Brokeback Mountain
This movie is a perfect option if you want to see a raw but true love story; one of the most beloved films for the LGBT community. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal not only did an excellent work, but brought us a story that will give you so much to talk about: self-acceptance, growing…and how deep love can be sometimes.
6. The Great Gatsby
As the trailer said: ‘Is it possible to go back to the past?’ The answer here is ‘Yes’. The Great Gatsby should be considered as a great love story: as it’s a story of perseverance and determination: a man who decided to become the greatest man ever just for the woman he loved. The two versions are great, but this Sunday you should watch the latest one, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the main role.
7. The Bodyguard
Of course, if you enjoy good music then you definitely need to listen to a this movie that boasts an extraordinary voice and soundtrack. There’s not only a great singer, but there’s also another tremendous romance that everyone will end up loving a lot. Also, it’s a perfect excuse to honour the memory of the late Whitney Houston, whose fourth anniversary of her death was just a few days ago.
