We know, we know, romance is not the genre you watch or is your “cup of tea.” But one thing that we have learned these past few years is that people lie. Despite ignoring the existence of the romance genre or romantic movies as a whole, people tend to switch on them the very chance they get.
And being frank, we also need a little bit of love in this situation, don’t you think. So, if you are a romance genre fan or someone who pretends to loathe it, then you are in for luck.
From the sequel of The Kissing Booth to the mystery guy in ‘To All the Boys I have loved before,‘ here are the top 9 romantic movies to watch this year. If you have already watched some, it will not hurt to watch then again now, would it?
1. To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
One of the hits of 2018 and based on the book by the same name, To All the Boys I have Loved Before, is a must-see for now. The sequel of the movie, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You begins with Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky dating.
But soon, she finds herself in conflict after the arrival of her childhood crush, John Ambrose. Curious to know how the story unfolds, then you better watch it.
2. The Photograph
However, there is a lot more to the story than it shows. What could it be?
3. Inside The Rain
Guys, we tall you, some of these names are just too creative. The story follows the love between Benjamin Glass, a college student who has ADHD, OCD, and borderline personality and sex worker, Emma.
Likewise, the two develop a bond while working together to clear Glass’s name that could potentially expel him from college.
One of the highest-rated romance movies of 2020, it would be such a waste not to see it.
4. The Lovebirds
Issa Rae is truly keeping her name in romance genre this year, as she again stars in another titled, The Lovebirds. The romantic comedy film shows the story of a couple played by Issa and Kumail Nanjiani, who fled after witnessing a murder.
Its release was delayed due to the pandemic and was sold to Netflix. So, make sure to watch the movie right after this.
5. Happiest Season
The only thing is, her girlfriend has not come out to her conservative parents, leaving her in a difficult situation. Hopefully, we will be able to see the movie in theatres by then.
Moving on, the story follows the real-life Mary Anning, a fossil hunter who later falls in love with a young woman played by Ronan. Not the kind of romantic movies we are used to, eh!
7. Marry Me
Now, bringing in the veterans of the showbiz world, Jennifer Lopez, who will appear as a famous musician on-screen too. The story takes a sudden turn when JLO finds her fiancé (Owen Wilson) cheated on her while walking down the aisle.
The ceremony at Madison Square Garden gets chaotic when JLo marries a random guy from the crowd instead. This might be one of the romantic movies; we just have to watch.
8. The Kissing Booth
Now, another sequel of the hit movie, The Kissing Booth 2, is returning to the cinema this year. Not to spoil anything, the story will follow the book the film is based upon.
9. Chemical Hearts
Chemical Hearts is yet another movie to be based on the novel by the same name. Written by Krystal Sutherland, the film will star Riverdale actress, Lili Reinhart as a high schooler.
