Memorable Quote: “When you love someone, you love all of them... you gotta love everything about them, not just the good things but the bad things too. The things that you find lovable and the things you don't.”
Only You (1994)
Faith Corvatch has always been the ultimate romantic, getting the name of the man she’ll marry from a Ouija board and a carnival fortune teller when she was a teen. But years later, she puts her engagement to a podiatrist on hold to find the mysterious Damon Bradley in Italy after a chance phone call. This is the movie to watch if you have little faith in love but want a reminder of how great it can be.
Memorable Quote: “How could you do this to me?” “Because I’m in love with you!” “Ha! What kind of an excuse is that?”
Somewhere in Time (1980)
A Chicago playwright finds a way to hypnotize himself into time traveling to the past, finding the actress whose portrait he’s fascinated with while staying at a hotel. This movie is perfect to watch if you want an incredibly romantic, bittersweet, impossible love story that brings a tender perspective to fighting and waiting for the one you love.
Memorable Quote: “There is so much to say...I cannot find the words. Except for these: ‘I love you.’”
He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)
Singles and couples in Baltimore try to interpret the misleading words and actions they face in relationships, coming to different levels of realization that sometimes the journey is not what they expected it to be. Check out this film if you need to sort out your priorities when it comes to dating and courtship!
Memorable Quote: “Maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.”
