Today we welcome author Mia March to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Mia’s The Meryl Streep Movie Club, out now, is a story about how women come together to find commonality—and eventually their own happiness—through watching movies. To help us reach that common ground, Mia is sharing her list of top 10 romantic movies. Thanks, Mia!
Coming up with my top 10 favorite romantic movies wasn’t easy (there are so many), but these are the ones (in no particular order) I watch over and over, that never get old, that inspire me, make me think, make me laugh, make me cry, make me see something new with each viewing.
Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version): Two words: Colin Firth. Based on one of my favorite novels by Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice has it all: Five unmarried sisters in early 19th century England, delightful humor, the constant threat of disgrace, the arrogant, smoldering Mr. Darcy (of the pride), the intelligent, good-humored Elizabeth (of the prejudice). I love every version, but the BBC’s adaptation is my favorite.
