Nick Cassavetes’s modern classic is a beautiful and heartbreaking romance drama. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams star as Noah and Allie; a young couple whose story about how they meet and fall in love in the 1940s is narrated from the present day by an elderly patient. There are many obstacles that prevent the young couple from being together, but they eventually overcome them in the saddest but most beautiful way. Be prepared to sob a river.

The energetic 1961 musical is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, set in New York. Two rival street gangs – the Sharks and the Jets – battle each other on the streets of Manhattan to gain territory.

The two conceal their love from everyone as they meet in secret and their feelings from each other grow stronger. But the two gangs are preparing for a final showdown to proclaim control of the streets. Is the romance doomed to failure, or can it overcome?

    Wow, hard to believe you missed the amazing 1968 adaptation of Romeo and Juliet by Zeffirelli with Olivia Hussey. In my whole life I will never forget seeing that film at 15. She was truly stunning with no fake tan or fake bosom or fake anything. She was perfect. And he…well God could not have sculpted a more amazing male. Leonard Whiting was a perfect Romeo. The film won 2 Oscars for Cinemetography and Costume Design. Zeffirelli was nominated for Best Director and the film for Best Picture. It was also nominated for several Golden Globes and won Best director for Zeffirelli from The National Board of Review. It was not only visually stunning but the soundtrack particularly “What is a Youth?” was amazing. Really messed up not including this one.

    I really think City of Angels is a great one.
    I cried so hard when I watched that movie.
    It’s such a beautiful movie.
    And, Legends Of The Fall is another one.
    Love Me Tender is probably my favorite though.
