WE ASKED THE TEAM HERE AT THE ODELLS WHAT THEIR FAVORITE ROMANTIC MOVIE FILM WAS THAT INSPIRES LOVE IN ANY WAY. WE'RE SHARING OUR FAVORITE PICKS WITH YOU, ENJOY!

 

 

LAURA: VICKY CHRISTINA BARCELONA BECAUSE IT INSTANTLY TRANSPORTS ME TO SPAIN AND REMINDS ME OF WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO BE YOUNG IN MY 20's... AND JAVIER BARDEM IS PRETTY HOT!  JASON: AMELIE BECAUSE I LOVE HOW THEY DEVELOP A RELATIONSHIP WITHOUT ANY CONTACT WITH ONE ANOTHER. AND IT'S PARIS, WITH BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING AND AN AMAZING SCORE. IT MAKES ME WANT TO TRAVEL WITH LAURA.

 

 

SANDRA: A MIDNIGHT IN PARIS BECAUSE PARIS...AND THIS GUY.  JOHN: IS IT WEIRD TO SAY FORREST GUMP?? I MEAN, HE'S THE EPITOME OF SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, AM I RIGHT?

 

OSCAR: GHOST  I THINK IT'S BEAUTIFUL THAT EVEN AFTER HE DIED THEY CONTINUED TO LOVE EACH OTHER...ALTHOUGH I DON'T BELIEVE IN GHOSTS IN REAL LIFE.  KOKI: IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT  IT'S A CLASSIC! SMART, FUNNY AND TIMELESS.  EDVIN: INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS MOVIE VALENTINE HAS TO FACE ALL THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF BEING A SINGLE DAD. HAVING KIDS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT TASKS ONE HAS A HUMAN BEINGS. HOWEVER, AS A PARENT WE LEARN TO UNDERSTAND FROM A CARING POINT OF VIEW.   OUR CHILDREN'S LOVE HELPS US GROW AND MATURE TO ENDURE ALL THE EVERYDAY RESPONSIBILITIES WE MUST FACE AS PARENTS BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED.

 

 

CHLOE: THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE THIS FRENCH FILM IS A MELANCHOLY STORY ABOUT A YOUNG WOMAN ABOUT TO TAKE HER LIFE, BUT SHE IS TALKED OUT OF JUMPING OFF A BRIDGE BY A MAN WHO TAKES HER ON A KNIFE THROWING ACT. I LOVE IT BECAUSE IT FEATURES MUSIC BY MARIANNE FAITHFUL AND SHOWS HOW A RELATIONSHIP CAN SAVE YOU FROM YOURSELF.  ESPIE: THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP THE USE OF MAGICAL REALISM IN THIS FILM IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I FIND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STEPHAN AND STEPHANIE'S ENDEARING IN HOW SHE APPRECIATES HIS VIVID DREAMS, IMAGINATION AND SEES PAST ALL HIS AKWARD BEHAVIOR.   JAIME: THE NOTEBOOK I LOVE HOW THE FILM CAPTURES THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF LOVE AS IT WEAVES THROUGH YOUNG LOVE AND SEASONED LOVE. THEY LOVE SO HARD THROUGH THE GOOD AND BAD AND THERE IS SO MUCH BEAUTY IN THE PAIN. 

 

 

JEN: HAROLD AND MAUDE IT'S A DARK, HILARIOUS AND EXISTENTIAL TAKE ON LIVING LIFE TO ITS FULLEST AND ACCEPTING LOVE IN ANY FORM. RUTH GORDON IS JUST AMAZING.  REECE: CALL ME BY YOUR NAME  THE SETTING IN THE FILM ITSELF WAS BEAUTIFUL AND I FELT I COULD RELATE TO THE HEARTACHE.  EMILY: BIG FISH EDWARD BLOOM REMEMBERS AND RETELLS HIS LOVE STORY WITH SO MUCH MAGIC. PLUS THAT SCENE WITH THE FIELD OF DAFFODILS!  MARIANNE: FATHER OF THE BRIDE THE WHOLE CAST IS JUST SO GOOD TOGETHER, STEVE MARTN AND DIANE KEATEN. IT'S SUCH A SWEET MOVIE ABOUT FAMILY LOVE AND ROMANTIC LOVE.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS SEGMENT.   MAY THIS DAY AND ALL YOUR DAYS BE FILLED WITH LOVE!
