… including one that’s not even out yet!
The most classic film on our list! Casablanca has been around for almost seventy years and it stil hasn’t lost its charm. It takes place during WWII in beautiful Morocco and stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Need I say more?
This movie was a huge hit when it came out in 2004. It is such a romantic film that its main stars began to date once the production was finished! It takes place in the early 1940s and is about a couple who, due to class differences, are not supposed to be together.
Sleepless in Seattle is a romantic movie about two people who have never met, although the story is a little more complicated than an online relationship of today.
Although this one didn’t get rave reviews, it has some great scenes. It’s very funny, which is a nice break from the heart-wrenching kinds of long-distance love movies. Since it was made in 2010, we can all relate to the technology they use to communicate (constant texting via your Blackberry, anyone?). Finally, it’s extra special for me since I watched it with my husband the day before I he left me at the airport for the first time.
Like Crazy (2011)
It doesn’t even come out until October 28, 2011, this movie is already garnering praise. It even won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It follows the story of an American man and British woman who meet in college (in the USA) and fall in love. The British gal overstays her visa after graduation and is rewarded with a ban from entering the United States. That puts them in an unexpected long-distance relationship, much like what happened to Elizabeth Gilbert and her partner in Committed. This film seems really promising–October, hurry up and arrive!
