The rain is coming down steadily in New York City today. On a gloomy day like this, nothing appeals to me more than a trip to the movies….and, something about the gloom makes me want to lose myself in a romance. For those of you curious, here’s a list of my all-time favorite romantic films. What I love about each of the 5 movies listed below, is that they aren’t just cotton candy romances, but poignant depictions of the human condition and the struggles we face. They’re all available at Amazon (links provided); if you’re fortunate enough to have Netflix direct movie streaming, all you need is a bowl of hot buttery popcorn and a comfortable chair.
