Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
February is full of lovely romance tropes. Our third topic is forbidden love!
#1 Romeo + Juliet
The ultimate forbidden love story. Baz Lurhman’s take on the story is by far my favorite. And we get Leonardo DiCpario and Paul Rudd in this film.
#2 Brokeback Mountain
Jack Gyllenhaal. I’ve had a crush on that guy every since Donnie Darko. Heath Ledger. A talent gone to soon.
#3 Pretty Woman
So, this might not be the first film that comes to mind, but it certainly fits the topic. A rich dude falls in love with a hooker and somehow they make it work!
What’s your favorite film about forbidden love? Let me know in the comments!
