The Best Romantic Movies on Netflix That Will Make You Feel Like Love Isn't Dead

Esquire Logo By Adrienne Westenfeld, Justin Kirkland of Esquire | Slide 1 of 34: Everyone loves a love story, whether you're ready to admit that or not. No matter how we get to the ending—be it happy or sad—the most human types of stories are the ones where we open our hearts up and give a piece of it to another person. And, no, maybe you don't want to go to a theater and let people see you crying your eyes out because Hollywood has captured the story of a 20th century biracial couple who paved the way for couples like them who simply want to be married (oh, I think we just told on ourselves). So instead, do it from the comfort of your house: your couch, your tears, your prerogative, dammit. Netflix has a whole library to choose from, from historical romances to romantic comedies to everything in between. If you’re looking to sob into some tissues, or maybe just to chuckle about all the hijinks it takes to get two people down the aisle, then have we got a list for you. Expect romance of all varieties from this list: star-crossed, forbidden, historical, and so on. We're talking a range from sexy heists to strait-laced dramas to teenage romances set in the first blush of young love. If you’re coupled up, these movies will make you grateful you’re off the market, and if you’re looking for love, they’ll remind you that real love is out there in abundance. Settle in with some wine, some chocolate, some oysters—whatever aphrodisiacs you like—and press play to be swept off your feet.
