These are some of my favorite romantic moments. In no particular order:
1. Little Women
Friedrich and Jo
Jo runs out to thank him for her book. He proposes, she accepts, then he says- "But I have nothing to give you. My hands are empty." she puts her hand in his with the reply, "Not empty now."
2. The Family Stone
Ben and Meredith
Parked in the car he talks about this cute dream he had about her. Then they simply just sit in comfortable silence.
3. Persuasion (1995)
Wentworth and Anne
Seeming to forget his umbrella he brings a note to her attention giving her a hopeful, nervous expression (and it's the best love note ever!). She hurries out and seeing him they look at each other with all the love that's been denied them for so long.
4. First Knight
Lancelot and Guinevere
When he saves her and they ride off on the horse. Then he lifts her down and carries her to rest under some trees. After feeling relief and catching their breath they smile.
5. In the Land of Women
Agnes and Carter
In the rain when she tells him she has cancer and he kisses her. It wasn't shown in the trailer, so it was a sweet surprise.
6. My Blueberry Nights
Jeremy and Elizabeth
Sleeping with her head resting on the counter with some pie cream left on her mouth, he leans to kiss her and she wakes to kiss him back.
7. The Terminal
Viktor and Amelia
Although they didn't know each other long, they had a cute little connection. She was willing to sacrifice staying in a relationship with that man, to help Viktor finally leave the airport. When he comes out she's on her way in, and they see each other and smile. The snow falling is so beautiful.
8. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Ian and Toula
After a bit of flirting through the window he comes in and they both say hello.
9. Leap Year
Declan and Anna
The next morning, after having to share a bed, he wakes up and his hand is resting on her arm. He keeps it there for a moment and then finger by finger he gently removes his hand, and we see she was awake.
10. Jane Eyre (1996)
Rochester and Jane
Feeling out of place Jane slips out of the party just to have Rochester at her heels, hoping she wouldn't leave so soon.
11. Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Darcy and Lizzy
When she tells him to call her Mrs. Darcy whenever he's hopelessly happy.
12. Love Actually
Jamie and Aurelia
Simple, he says in English- "It's my favorite time of day, driving you." and she says in Portuguese- "It's the saddest part of my day, leaving you." neither knowing what the other is saying.
13. Picture Perfect (1997)
Nick and Kate
Needing a fake fiance to help her job, she offers Nick money. but he turns it around, saying he was planning on asking her out ever since they met, and it would be cool if some of her co-workers joined them. and enter one of my favorite songs, Say What you Want by Texas made this scene the more perfect
14. Wicker Park
Matt and Lisa
Being apart for so long; the way they just fall into each others arms, at the end, was wonderful.
15. Return to Me
Bob and Grace
He goes to Italy to tell her he loves her and puts his head to her heart.
I couldn't help but mention Pearl Harbor (two of my fave scenes with the same girl, different guy. Damn she's lucky)
when the cork hits Rafe in his busted nose and he says she's so beautiful it hurts. she reminds him it's his nose and he says it's his heart. and we are definitely kissing him, no question.
and the love scene with Danny in the parachute hanger. it doesn't get anymore romantic than that!
