Grab your movie kit (popcorn, sodas, and/or tissues), dim the lights and let the movie begin…
5th – The Sound of Music
Winner of Best Picture 1966
Love is the main theme of this film which centers on family, romance, country, the importance of faith and values. Julie Andrews plays the main character Maria who thru her actions shows others that a loving heart can make you achieve all you set your mind to. Plus, the music is spectacular!
4th – Brokeback Mountain
Nominated for Best Picture 2006
Winner of multiple Academy Awards this 2005 film shows how time cannot erase the memories and love you feel for another although life’s timing and circumstances may not always play on your favor. It reflects that no matter what the world might think or say at the end of the day love is love.
3rd – Slumdog Millionaire
Winner of Best Picture 2009
As TIME says “a movie to celebrate” … it tells the story of Jamal & Latika who knew each other since kids and overcome a future in where luck is part of their lives. Winner of 7 Academy Awards including Best Picture for 2009.
2nd – Titanic
Winner of Best Picture 1998
Described by some as a powerful story of survival, love and heroism. A love story that will be in our heart, as the song said “will go on and on” and for many people around the world we “will never let go”. This movie represents how love can transcend time and play a vital role into our own life and choices.
1st – Beauty and the Beast
Nominated for Best Costume Design and Production Design 2018
Our number 1 choice, although only the animated version was nominated for Best Picture, we do believe the real life version is a winner in our hearts. This film portrays love beyond appearances, social backgrounds and personalities. It shows how love can help you change and find the real you.
