Ten Romantic Movies for Both Men and Women

Top 10 Movie Picks
A Beautiful Mind
The story of real-life mathematician John Nash, this movie combines elements of a spy-thriller, a coming of age story and a tragic, heartbreaking drama. Through all of those themes, you’re pulled, almost unwittingly, into a narrative of love being tried against unimaginable odds. Winner of four Academy Awards, this is an ideal date movie for the couple that wants something a little deeper than the typical love story.
Lead roles: Russell Crowe ~ Ed Harris ~Jennifer Connelly
It’s a film all about candy... For the women, there’s Johnny Depp. For the men, Juliette Binoche. Oh, and the chocolate certainly rounds it out. This movie carries themes we all understand, particularly messages about acceptance and perseverance in the face of societal criticism. It was Academy Award-nominated and received a number of accolades. Have a taste, it’s not too rich and will leave you to some sweet conversation afterwards.
Lead roles: Johnny Depp ~ Juliette Binoche
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This movie really gives you something to think about. Jim Carrey tones down the animation to pair with Kate Winslet in a story almost anyone can relate to. This is not your standard film — it crosses between reality and the surreal — but manages to remain convincing. It didn’t get a great deal of exposure upon release, likely because you have to be in the right mood to engage with the pacing and appreciate the story.
Lead roles: Jim Carrey ~ Kate Winslet
Legends of the Fall
The film has been recognized for its cinematography, including gripping action scenes and an array of breath-taking landscapes. The Oscar Award-winning drama features an ensemble of incredible actors and a complex love story. It’s one of those movies that hangs a little heavy, so it’s appropriate for a evening when you both feel like bunkering in.
Lead roles: Brad Pitt ~ Anthony Hopkins ~ Julia Ormond
How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
If you prefer something light-hearted, this is an ideal choice. Unlike your typical romantic comedy, this movie is actually quite funny. It’s not overly corny or sappy, it’s entertaining and maybe a little outrageous. Both lead actors sell their parts and, at the very least, they’re certainly nice to look at. This one is great for a few laughs and no serious commitment.
Lead roles: Kate Hudson ~ Matthew McConaughey
