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:

 Bouquet of flowers, including roses and lilies

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.
