Pride & Prejudice (2005)
There have been a number of adaptations of Pride & Prejudice over the years since Jane Austen’s novel rose to fame. But none have captured the hearts of fans everywhere quite like the 2005 film starring Kiera Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.
Now, thanks to Netflix, you can devour all the Mr. Darcy content that you want. Roll back the hand flex scene one more time—don’t worry, no one’s watching.
Sleepless in Seattle
This Nora Ephron flick stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as two lovers falling for each other from miles away. After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin is looking for love. When he goes on a radio show and discusses his loss, the world is touched, and none more so that Annie Reed, who asks Sam to meet her on Valentine’s Day atop the Empire State Building.
One of the most iconic romance movies of all time, Sleepless in Seattle is finally coming to Netflix as a much-needed and timely ode to the power of love despite distance.
The Kissing Booth 2
If you missed The Kissing Booth a few years ago, it’s time to correct your mistake. The highly-anticipated follow up, aptly named The Kissing Booth 2, premieres on Netflix on July 24th.
Starring Joey King, Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi, and Joel Courtney, the sequel picks up right where the first film left off. As Noah heads to Harvard and Elle juggles long-distance and life-planning, a new flame may complicate her life enormously.
A Walk to Remember
From romance giant Nicholas Sparks comes this heartbreaking romance film about two teens in North Carolina caught in a love racing against time.
Landon Carter never planned to fall in love with preacher’s daughter Jamie Sullivan—in fact, he promised he wouldn’t. But as the two grow closer, a love blooms between them, unstoppable by anyone—except fate.
It’s back again, and if you missed it the first few times it was streaming on Netflix, make sure you don’t miss it now. Any good romance movie fan will tell you that The Notebook is among the best of the best.
Whether you’re settling in to watch it for the first time or the fiftieth, we know you’ll be in a puddle of tears by the end.
