Have you ever noticed how many genres there are within the romance movie category? There are comedies to make you laugh till you pee, thrillers that will make you question everyone you haven’t known for 20 plus years, dramas that feel so real and relatable, you can’t stop thinking about them months after watching... And sometimes, what you’re in the mood for is something that makes you sad before it maybe makes you happy again. There are so many romantic movies on Netflix that’ll make you cry, because maybe tonight that’s just what the doctor ordered.
That doesn’t necessarily mean all the romantic movies on this list are sad and depressing flicks. Some have happy endings, some don’t (because that’s life, to be honest), but they’ll all make you feel for the characters and whatever joy or sorrow they go through in the film. What makes a good romance movie is that they entertain you and move you in some way or another. More than anything though, they’ll make you believe in true love, even if that love is not eternal.
So make your way to Netflix, unwrap some chocolate, grab your favorite bottle of wine, and make sure you have more than 3 sheets left in that tissue box — you’re going to need them.
