10 Best Sad Love Movies

Monday, January 24 by Megan Bushree

The following list includes the 10 best sad love movies. There is nothing quite like a good romantic film to escape from reality and immerse yourself into a tale of true love. These films are pleasurable because in spite of their sadness, they offer a generous helping of the romantic spirit.

  1. "Ghost." Although "Ghost" may be remembered most for its sensual pottery scene featuring the iconic oldie "Unchained Melody," the film is actually a heartbreaking tale of true love that manages to span the distance between life and the in-between.
  2. "The Notebook." This is a love story spanning a lifetime which shows an incredible amount of devotion. Rachel Mcadams and Ryan Gosling have such amazing chemistry it almost seems intrusive to watch this passionate romance.
  3. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." A bizarre mind-trip that results in the equally heartbreaking and uplifting realization that no matter how hard we try, sometimes we gravitate towards those who are completely wrong for us. Even after erasing their memory multiple times, Joel (Jim Carrey) and the unstable Clementine (Kate Winslet) manage to find each other time and time again.
  4. "Punch Drunk Love." The rage that eminates from Barry (Adam Sandler) seems to make him seem like he is incapable of finding anything resembling a normal relationship. What he finds in Lena (Emma Watson) is anything but normal, yet they find a wacky love that, after a series of obstacles, manages to fit them just fine.
  5. "Romeo + Juliet (1996)." The classic Shakespeare tragedy appears even sadder in the modern retelling thanks to the intense chemistry and acting abilities of the young Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.
