Time Waits for True Love

Children's Valentine, 1940–1950

I have already admitted I am not a Valentine’s Day fan, and those who know me well have accused me of being *prickly*–ouch….

Yet, when by myself, so no one can see me mush over and admit that I really  am a romantic at heart, these are three of the movies, make that four movies, that guarantee I will be sniffling and clutching Kleenex  by the movie’s end because time cannot keep true love apart.  P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day–but you didn’t hear me say that…

  1. I’ve watched all four of the movies you list, but my favorite is Persuasion. You just gotta love Cieran Hinds in this role.

    Favorite mush movie: I’m not sure. It’s a toss-up between Sliding Doors ( with Gwyneth Paltrow), Love Actually, Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth version), and the North and South miniseries.

  2. The Time Travellers wife Movie was a disaster. The book did it for me. I’m a bit of a romantic and although I do enjoy Vday cheesiness I can’t think of one thing to do. You should watch One Day and The Holiday. You’ll love it! 😉

  3. For me it’s Sleepless in Seattle. The heart on the Empire State Building, ahhhh.

  4. Mine is You’ve Got Mail because Tom Hanks is Tom Hanks. I tend to avoid any romance movies, so for other mush I go to Tangled and Les Misérables.

  5. I really liked this version of Persuasion. Good pick. Right off the top of my head, my favorite feel good films are (1) Shining Through (Michael Douglas, Melanie Griffith); (2) Overboard (cheesy, but I don’t care); (3) Sense & Sensibility (Emma Thompson); P.S. I love you (Gerard Butler); (4) Bride and Prejudice; …. 🙂

    • Bride and Prejudice absolutely rocks! I’m hoping I can sneak it into my AP curriculum as a way of showing the influence of Jane Austen on a world wide level. Think it’ll go?

      • Absolutely! Cute guy, cute gal, lots of singing and the drama of it all. Let me tell you, I still love some of the movies that my teachers introduced to us, like the Scarlet Pimpernel with Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour. Oddly enough, we watched that in Bible Class and not English. Anyway, my point (yes, I have one) is that I am so thankful that my teachers had us watch these fun movies because they have been much loved movies for me.

  6. You little softie ! I’ll ‘fess up to North and South (love the railway station scene), Love Actually ( because it reminds me that love actually comes in many forms), Sense and Sensibility (poor Eleanor – all versions of this one) and You’ve Got Mail ( because of the underlying sadness of the way we are loosing our small book shops)
