The verve and excitement of falling in love are something we’ve all experienced in our lives at some point of time or the other. Love is a special feeling; something that is too inexplicably beautiful to be put into words and phrases. But the madness of love could be fleeting. Human beings are complex creatures and most of us could be really hard to get along with, thanks to the beauty of differences. I’m sure most of you have been in a complicated relationship at some point of time or the other in life; a relationship that is relentlessly devastating you on an emotional level and find yourself ensnared in the indecipherable intricacies of love. This article hopes to offer solace to all you lovers out there, wandering through lanes of desolation. Here is a list of 10 movies that you should watch if you are in a complicated relationship:
10. 500 Days of Summer (2009)
Without a doubt, the most popular film on the list. ‘500 Days of Summer’ is a film that every lover gets back to, in their most joyful moments and even in times seeking solace from the sad realities of love. The film chronicles 500 days of Tom and Summer’s relationship, capturing the events that lead to its making and breaking. Director Marc Webb provides a charmingly refreshing treatment to a story that may seem very cliched. ‘500 Days of Summer’ is a film that you would secretly want to hug and never let go as it cleverly brings out the romantic suckers hidden in each and every one of us.
9. Revolutionary Road (2008)
Sam Mendes’ 2008 drama of a couple getting exposed to the brutalities of their relationship and getting to confront the realities they’ve been evading throughout their lives is as painful and disturbing as Mendes’ 1999 classic ‘American Beauty’ which explores similar themes. Beautifully acted by the iconic Kate-Leo duo, the film is relentless in its startling exploration of marriage and the intricacies of everyday life and how even the slightest of glances or a tiny bit of laugh could change the dynamics of a relationship in ways you haven’t imagined before. ‘Revolutionary Road’ won immense critical acclaim during its release but sadly has not caught up to its viewers with time and we hope that it gets the respect and admiration it truly deserves.
