While you may not have big date night plans for this year’s Valentine’s Day, no pandemic can take away one of the holiday’s most time-honored traditions: watching romantic movies on your favorite streaming platforms. When it comes to movies that will make you say, “aww,” Netflix has no shortage! Here are 3 great picks, whether you’re in the mood for a ‘90s rom-com, a teenage romance, or a historical and romantic drama.
Runaway Bride (1999)
Get ready for all the ‘90s nostalgia you can handle with Runaway Bride! The classic romantic comedy stars Julia Roberts as Maggie, a woman who has left three men at the altar, and Richard Gere as Ike, a journalist assigned to write about her tale. When Maggie gets engaged for the fourth time, Ike heads to her hometown to cover what he believes will be her inevitable fourth run from the altar. In the process, he realizes that his feelings run deep for her.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018)
A perfect teenage rom-com, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, is based on a popular young adult book and follows Lara Jean, whose collection of love letters is accidentally sent to each of her crushes. To deflect attention from one boy – her sister’s ex-boyfriend – Lara Jean enters a fake relationship with another. All in all, it makes for a sweet and romantic movie that you’ll easily watch in one evening. And, when you’re done, stream the sequel on the same platform, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.
The Theory of Everything (2014)
If you enjoy movies with a historical edge, The Theory of Everything is perfect for your Valentine’s Day celebrations. The biographical film delves deeply into Stephen Hawking’s relationship with his wife, Jane, as he comes to terms with his ALS diagnosis. Despite everything, the famous physicist attempts an ambitious study of time, making more earth-shattering discoveries in the areas of medicine and science than either could anticipate.
