Stephenie Meyer Lists her Favourite Romance Films!
Last week, Stephenie Meyer’s novels hit the big screens again with the screen debut of “The Host” A science-fiction romance set in a post-apocalyptic reality. The Daily Beast asked Ms Meyer for her top ten romantic films, and here they are!
James McAvoy—as if you need any more descriptor other than just… James McAvoy. If you haven’t seen it, see it. It’s such a lovely fairytale because it feels like a children’s story in some ways. It seems almost illustrated.
(500) Days of Summer (2009)
(500) Days of Summer is this completely novel way of doing things. Having become more involved with filmmakers, the creation and the way the story is told is probably more fascinating to me than it would have been before.
Notting Hill (1999)
I’ve always been a sucker for Notting Hill, I don’t know why, and I don’t know why I can’t change the channel when that movie comes on. It’s so cute. It was one of my last favorite romantic comedies for a long time.
Sense and Sensibility (1995)
The reason why I love this film so much is because it’s beautiful to look at, and you feel like the whole story is told; very few things are missing. It’s very real and doesn’t feel like it’s jammed together or shortened in any way.
Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
I really liked Crazy Stupid Love. I mean … Ryan Gosling. And Emma Stone, who is going to be just … everything. She’s kind of there already, isn’t she? Anything she’s in is exciting because her performances are always really, really good. To be able to do comedy and drama too, that’s a gift.
