3 – You’ve Got Mail
Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan
- Murphy LOVES to roll his eyes every time I put this on. I just adore the story. It is lovely and complicated. AND I introduced our girls to it last year – they loved it too!! Sweet and fun.
2 – Walk the Line
Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon.
- What a ride!! This love story is so raw (to me) and it IS of course a true story!! Reese won an Academy Award for it, and Joaquin should have. If you’ve never seen it, treat yourself!
Starring Keira Knightley
- This one cannot be topped for me!! It is BEAUTIFULLY done, and I’ve watched it over and over. SO GOOD! Every character and scene are perfect. Donald Sutherland is also in this movie, and Dame Judi Dench is the icing on the cake. My favorite!!!
HONORABLE mentions I love:
P.S. I Love You (Hillary Swank, Gerard Butler)
WOWZA!!!! Love the story, it’s not an easy one though. Bonus: Harry Connick Jr. has a good role here too.
When a Man Loves a Woman (Meg Ryan, Andy Garcia)
This is heavy too, but GREAT. About a married couple barely making it b/c of an alcohol addiction.
Made of Honor (Patrick Dempsey, Michelle Monaghan)
SO funny and lovely! This movie has the best of fun, romantic and serious love stuff!
