20 most romantic movies

Everyone needs a bit of romance. Check out these recommendations on modern and classic love films


1. Casablanca (1942)

Romantic leads: Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
'I love the tragedy of it all, the sheer drama, Ingrid Bergman's sad eyes and beautiful face. It's all about – heart-wrenchingly – not getting everything you want.'
'In the end, knowing your love is returned is enough, even if fate keeps you apart.'

2. Titanic (1997)

Romantic leads: Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
'Everyone dreams of finding that perfect love and feeling that instant spark. And the scene where the elderly couple lies in bed together, holding each other and waiting to die, kills me!'

3. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Romantic leads: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan
'This movie restored my faith in the magic of romance. Maybe we DO have destinies and maybe fate DOES intervene.'
'I love how Tom Hanks' son knew the whole time that Meg Ryan was the one.'

4. Gone with the Wind (1939)

Romantic leads: Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh
'We all want to be Scarlett O'Hara and have men surrounding us – plus in the long dresses from that era, you?d never have to shave your legs!'

5. When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Romantic leads: Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan
'My favourite part of the movie is at the New Year's Eve celebration, when Billy Crystal runs all the way to see Meg Ryan – what he says is fabulous: "When you finally figure out you love someone, you don't want to spend another minute without that person!" (Or something like that!)'
