Valentine’s Day is perfect for watching a romantic movie.  The list of lovey-dovey stories available for viewing is endless!  I could fill these pages with tear-jerkers, broken hearts, passionate love scenes, and beautiful weddings.
  Re-watch some great ones or find some new love films to enjoy.  Here are three of my favourites!
Fifty Shades of Grey (2015):  XXX movie!  When college senior Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair -- and learns that Christian's true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.
Love Story (1970): It is a simple yet unforgettable movie. The movie revolves around the duo (Ali MacGraw, Ryan O'Neal) madly in love with each other while in college. The boy in the movie belongs to a rich family who marries his poor love who gets sick and dies – “Love means never having to say you are sorry.”
An Affair to Remember (1957):  A man and a woman (Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr) have a romance while on a cruise from Europe to New York. Despite being engaged to other people, both agree to end their other relationships and reunite at the top of the Empire State Building in six months. However, an unfortunate accident keeps her from the reunion, and he fears that she has married or does not love him anymore.
