10 of our favourite romantic movies

It's the season of love, so catch up some of our all-time favourite romantic flicks.

Whether you're watching with your sweetie or planning a romance-themed movie night with your BFFs, we have a film recommendation that's seasonally appropriate. A mix of classic dramas and modern-day rom-com, this library of love-struck films made us laugh, tear up and even flat-out ugly-cry. So rev up the popcorn machine, snuggle in and get ready for the romantic edition of "Netflix and chill."  
 
The Bridges of Madison County 
Based on the best-selling novel by the same name, Meryl Streep plays an Italian war bride in Iowa who has an affair with a National Geographic photographer, played by actor-director Clint Eastwood. The rest is history.  
 
Pretty Woman 
Ah, the classic tale of the down-and-out prostitute and the millionaire who sends her on a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive. This Garry Marshall rom-com recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, and although Richard Gere wants to erase it from his memory, Julia Roberts' infectious laugh still makes us smile. 
 
Titanic 

The second top-grossing film of all time (over 2 billion dollars) continues to rank as number one in the hearts of many. First class passenger and 17-year-old beauty Rose is being forced to marry a rich man by her penniless mother. But then she meets Jack, a handsome third class passenger, and they fall in love exploring the ship together.  
 
Casablanca 
The two leads, Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart set the rumour mill into overdrive with suspicion of an off-camera affair due to their undeniable on-screen chemistry. With Morocco and WWII as the backdrop, an exiled American freedom fighter runs into an old flame that he thought ran out on him in Paris. But when he discovers the real reason, their passion is reignited.  
 
Love Actually 
Instead of one love story, this Christmas time film explores nine relationships, including one between a Prime Minister and a staff member, a soon-to-be bride and her male best friend, and a Brit and a gaggle of American tourists. With so many storylines to choose from, you'll find yourself rooting for more than one relationship.  
 
Ghost 
This film made us all want to take up pottery. When Demi Moore's husband, played by Patrick Swayze, is murdered, he becomes trapped as a ghost and is desperate to warn his wife of the danger she's in. 
 
Dirty Dancing 
This is another film starring Patrick Swayze, but this time it made us want to take up ballroom dancing. When Baby heads to a Catskills resort with her family for their summer vacation, she falls for Johnny the dance instructor—and does a lot of growing up. 
 
When Harry Met Sally 
A classic Nora Ephron script that explores if a man and woman can remain friends, and then follows the relationship of Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal's courtship from pals to married couple.  
 
The Notebook 
Based on a Nicholas Sparks' book, real life couple Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams starred as on-screen lovers. During a hot summer in South Carolina, blue-collar worker Noah falls for heiress Allie, but their relationship doesn't last the season.  
 
Gone With The Wind 
This historical romance is set during the American Civil War. Vivien Leigh plays Scarlett O'Hara, a southern belle and the daughter of a plantation owner, who finds and loses love.
