7 Romantic Movies You
May Have Not Seen Yet
In honor of St. Valentine, here’s a bouquet of seven romantic movies that you might not have watched yet:
1) New in Town (2009). An amusing little movie that takes place mostly in snowy Minnesota and that stars Renée Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. Just the thing for a winter’s evening.
2) Serendipity (2001). A charming film (featuring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale) about, yes, the role that serendipity can play in romance.
3) Sense and Sensibility (1995). One of the best screen adaptations of a Jane Austen novel. Great performances by Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman.
4) The Princess Bride (1987). Amazing characters, astonishing events, a large cast ranging from Robin Wright to Billy Crystal.
5) The Shop Around the Corner (1940). The movie that inspired the Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks flick, You’ve Got Mail.
6) Love Affair (1939). Another production that inspired a well-known film—in this case, An Affair to Remember (which stars Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr).
7) Holiday (1938). A gem of a movie, with a cast headed by Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. Set at Christmas time, but the one-word title actually refers to taking time off from work rather than to the Christmas season.
