Top 3 Romantic Movies with Ophelia London

“An Affair to Remember” (1957)

This is one of my fave movies in general, let alone, romance. Hello, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr fall in love? Sign me up! What I dig is how it basically debunks the normal formula from beginning to end. Hear me out… It starts as a romantic comedy (See the scene when Nickie and Terry both order the pink champagne.) When they slow dance out on the deck of the ship under the stars, and he sexily moves his hands inside her coat to rub her back, we’ve moved into a straight romance. But wait, remember what happens when Terry goes to meet Nickie on the top of the Empire Building? Yeah, we’ve got a full-on romantic drama now…which concludes with the inarguably dreamy romantic ending of all time!


“The Princess Bride” (1987)

I’ve loved this “kissing book” my whole life! Yes, the story is the cutest thing ever, but lately, I’ve fallen in love with it on a more technical level. One example, at first blush, the film-making can sometimes look a little budget—what with the storiform boulders, and rubber-suited But if you think about it, it’s specifically being told as a bedtime story, full of monsters, pirates, quick sand, a six-fingered man, and of course, a princess bride named Buttercup. The cleverness of the film-makers never ceases to delight me!


“La-La Land” (2016)

I mean, I love old classic musicals, and this movie was such a happy surprise out of modern Hollywood. I adore the bright sets and costumes, the charming characters, and especially the singing and dancing! Like, I cannot get enough of it. I will say, though, the stupid ending freaking broke my heart the first time I saw it. I nonetheless find myself blasting the soundtrack and revisiting their little world despite the ensuing tears and cursing at the TV.


What is your favorite romantic movie? Do you like rom-coms, straight romances, or romantic dramas? I know, it’s so hard to choose!

What happens when a traditional horse whisperer clashes with an unconventional trainer within the charming Amish community of Honey Brook?

Grace Zook has always held a talent with horses, ever since she was a child growing up in her quaint Amish village of Honey Brook. Now, as an adult, she’s become a master trainer—but still struggles to prove to her father that she is worthy of taking over the family’s horse farm. With a fiery new stallion coming soon, Grace knows this challenge is her chance to prove she can finally take the reins.

When widower and horse whisperer Isaac King is offered the lead training job on a new farm out of town, he’s thrilled to finally make a name for himself and provide some permanent roots for his young daughter. But not only is the stallion seemingly unbreakable, so, too, is the owner’s headstrong daughter Grace, who has drastically different ideas about how to handle the impossible horse. Yet somehow, he can’t seem to get the confident, beautiful woman out of his mind…even though as his boss’s daughter, she is completely off-limits.

There’s too much at stake for Isaac to gamble his future on Grace…even though suddenly, he can’t imagine one without her.
