All's Fair in Love and Films
The 50 Best Romance Movies
You know the one I'm talking about. The first. The one that made you say, "oh, so this is what everyone's on about." When she smiled, you wanted to laugh, and when she laughed, you wanted to laugh, too. That's l'amour. Love, for you non-francophiles. Nothing like it in the world. Nothing can bring you so high, and then drop you so low.
Romance movies aim to capture this ride -- the highs of love found, the lows of love lost, and everything in between. They help us see that the elusive (feeling? emotion? noun?) happens to everyone -- sometimes when we least expect it -- and makes us do and say crazy things. They prove to us that we're not alone; love shapes our lives, changing everyone it touches, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. We feel you, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We know your pain.
