What’s a better way of spending Valentine’s Day than with your loved ones watching some some romantic films that truly show what love is about? For this February 14th, these are some heart-stirring films to enjoy at the end of the day with that special someone.

 

Crazy, Stupid, Love

With a twist of unexpected events and misunderstandings, the romantic comedy, “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” shows the havoc and values in a relationship. In the film, Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) realizes that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce. After multiple trips to bars, he notices another man, Jacob (Ryan Gosling), who flawlessly picks up girls every night. Jacob hearing of his failing marriage offers to show Cal how to gain charisma among ladies, who then successfully entices Kate, who turns out to be his son’s (Jonah Bobo) teacher. With disastrous exposures and witty dialogue, the film will leave you hanging onto the edge of your seat to the end.

 

Me Before You

The saying that “love conquers all” is put into question in the film “Me Before You” when Louisa Clarke (Emilia Clarke) takes on the job of caring for the overbearing William Traynor (Sam Claflin), who is paralyzed from the neck down after a tragic motorcycle accident. Shown to have lost all appreciation for life, “Will” has requested that his parents help him in ending his life after six months. After eavesdropping on this short dispute between Will’s parents, “Lou” makes it her mission to show him that life really is worth living. This heart-warming  film will likely make you cry as you endeavor through their trip together and find the meaning of true love and sacrifices.

The Titanic

A romantic classic, “The Titanic” brings you back to the 1912 Titanic voyage with an unexpected encounter between two passengers of different social classes who fall into a disapproved relationship. A poor artist named Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and a girl trapped by her family’s financial problems, Rose (Kate Winslet), meet aboard deck after Rose attempts to take her life to escape her life’s problems. However, after conversing with each other about their lives, they begin to develop feelings for each other, taking daring risks while avoiding her family’s critical eye. However as an unforeseen accident causes the whole ship to start sinking, Jack and Rose race off the boat, putting their faith in each other before everything else.

 

The Age of Adaline

Love is shown to have no age, and in “The Age of Adaline,” Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) lives her life in a complete repeat since she has remained 29 since 1937. After a car accident leaves her with an unexplainable disease, preventing her from aging, she becomes a person of interest to the FBI. Escaping from abduction, she goes on the run to keep her and her daughter safe. After 60 years, she meets Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) at a New Year’s Eve Party, a man who persistently tries to get to know her, while Adaline continuously questions her need to run. With her inner compulsion to stay ambiguous and intrigue the new man, this film shows the risky path ahead of her as she chooses between love or self survival.
