valentines day

I love “love” and the idea of being in love and spending quality time with my partner, celebrating the high’s and lows and cherishing simple joys all the year round. But the option to make them feel “extra” special on a certain day makes the concept of Valentines Day more exciting which is why couples and singletons “in love” look forward to this day with a big heart.

Every couple has their own idea of Valentines Day and how they want to celebrate it, so if you’re one of those people who are planning to stay in on February 14, instead of randomly flipping through channels, relive the romance by cozying up with them and play one of these 6 movies to watch with him/her and fall in love again.

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind

Probably one of the most visually pleasing movies, Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind  showed the consequences and actions of people who fall in love and then how they deal with the aftermath after a breakup. The movie is about passion and a deep awakening of love and the memories made that, sometimes, not all people want to entirely forget. Clementine wants to forget Joel after a devastating breakup and erase his memories through a medical procedure, so when Joel finds out, he opts for the same, only to fight for his memories and go against the procedure in the recesses of his brain. Phew!

Brooklyn

Ireland in the early 1950’s becomes a backdrop for an Irish immigrant who moves to Brooklyn for her ambitions. She’s homesick, misses her sister, Rose, goes to night school and works during the day and falls in love. However when her past catches up with her, she’s torn and must choose between two countries, two lives and two people who love her because everything fits.

A Star Is Born

Two struggling musicians, old and new, fall in love with each other as they plough through the spotlight, the dark side of their relationship and inner demons. A Star Is Born is a musical batter between two souls who want to make it right.

Brokeback Mountain

Another story about forbidden love about two gay cowboys, their war to be together and lives over the years amidst tears and joy, and tragedies. Brokeback Mountain is raw and powerful, yet heart warming when as Jake Gyllenhall and Heath Ledger go on “fishing trips” to spend time with each other.

Crazy Rich Asians

A contemporary romantic comedy about social class difference, however love, with a tinge of humor, conquers all and that’s what we get to see in Crazy Rich Asians.

Moonlight

This movie is a journey towards, and a perceptiveness for love. In Moonlight we see a man coming of age during hardships, war and drugs as he struggles with his identity as an African-American gay young man with a dysfunctional setup. Chiron experiences love, pain, and the art of grappling with his truth.
