Valentines Countdown: Romantic Netflix Films
Are you doing anything this Valentines Day? Still umming and ahhing about whether to go out for a meal, or cook up that lovely 3 course meal we suggested? Well, if staying in is your thing then we have 8 fantastic films that are all on Netflix for your enjoyment!
Pride & Prejudice. Jane Austen and romance go hand in hand. This is the 2005 adaptation of the 1813 book, starring Kiera Knightley and made by the producers of Bridget Jones’ Diary — because all decent romances ultimately involve snagging a Mr. Darcy.
Silver Linings Playbook. Two of Hollywood’s biggest “It” stars — Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper — play kooky characters who fall in love while ballroom dancing (not very well)
Shakespeare in Love. Ugh, do we have to nominate a Gwyneth Paltrow film? It’s a charming love story with British accents, beautiful costumes and seven freakin’ Academy Awards to its name, including Best Picture! So while it pains us to do so, we guess we have to.
Weekend. A quiet, realistic portrait of two gay people spending an intimate weekend together — and they’re not lesbians!
Clueless It’s remarkable how well this movie about ’90s valley girls holds up twenty years later. Still super funny, still a great romantic story. Just great.
Legally Blonde Romance isn’t the only thing that matters, as Elle Woods discovers after enrolling in law school in an attempt to win back her boyfriend and instead falling in love with law.
Bridget Jones’s Diary When it rains it pours, am I right? Who will Renée Zellweger choose? Hugh Grant? Colin Firth? Tough call, and her indecisiveness earned her an Oscar nomination.
Meet the Parents And as a bit of a laugh at the end, this hilarious comedy shows what great lengths Greg Focker will go to impressive his future father-in-law.
So get yourself chilled out on the sofa after your meal and settle down in front of one of these films. Probably a bottle of wine in hand. Each. You know how it is! If you’re a real film geek, and adore the production and study behind it all, then here at The Sheffield College we have just the course for you! Check it out here!
