translated from Spanish: Home Valentine’s Day: 5 Romantic Movies to Watch on Netflix

Love Day is a perfect excuse to compensate and pamper (as you like) your half orange. Perhaps, both are against all this commercial paraphernalia and prefer to celebrate it with a low profile from the comfort of home, so we bring you the perfect accompaniment for that evening. The Netflix catalog is littered with romantic stories for all tastes and ages (because there is no age for love), even some «anti Valentine». We save you the task of having to find them among a sea of contents, and we select five very different stories with a common denominator: love, of course.        10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU (10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, GIL JUNGER, 1999)

For some strange reason, romantic tecome comedies of the late 1990s drank a lot from William Shakespeare’s pen, though only a few gave the key as this ‘modern classic’ freely inspired by «La Fierecilla Domada». Young and ignomies Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, among others, star in this high school-based story. The new guy (Levitt) falls in love, but the girl (Larisa Oleynik) will only go out with him if so does his sister (Stiles), a rather complicated minita for which you will have to look for a well-tailored partner (Ledger). YOUR NAME. (KIMI NO NA WA, MAKOTO SHINKAI, 2016)

Makoto Shinkai’s film, inspired by his own novel of the same name, is one of the favorites of everyone within the red N grid. While we hope that Hollywood will take over with one of its live-action projects, let’s take advantage of the story of Mitsuha, a young town girl – the daughter of the city’s mayor – who longs to live the emotions of the great metropolis and find the boy of his dreams on the streets of Tokyo. The little boy of his fantasies becomes «reality», and Taki, from the big city, in turn dreams of meeting Mitsuha, a charming country girl. Thus, both are fantastically connected, creating a special bond that must overcome various obstacles and give room for teenage romance. A PLACE CALLED NOTTING HILL (NOTTING HILL, ROGER MICHELL, 1999)

Julia Roberts crosses the puddle and brings all her charm to England to star in this guilty cinematic pleasure, alongside Hugh Grant: «I’m just a girl standing in front of a guy asking her to love her,» let’s let them all know. Anna Scott is the typical Hollywood star who walks her path with a shy local librarian who makes her feel like a normal person. Again the fairy tale, but with the added English humor contributed by the cool supporting actors who make everything more bearable. After this hitazo the Roberts stayed in Europe starring in several bodrios, but that’s a story for another top.  US AT NIGHT (OUR SOULS AT NIGHT, RITESH BATRA, 2017)

Jane Fonda and Robert Redford reunite – of course, it’s also worth seeing «Barefoot in the Park, 1967» – in this adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel of the same name. Addie Moore and Louis Waters, a widow and widower who have been neighbors for years but never crossed word, realize that they are too alone in this world and it’s time to start connecting and having the best time they have left in. Her children live far away, there’s not much to do in the small town of Holt, Colorado, and Addie decides to take the first step by taking an unexpected visit to her cowering neighbor. All right there, ma’am. LA LA LAND: A LOVE STORY (LA LAND, DAMIEN CHAZELLE, 2016)

Damien Chazelle remixes his great passions in this more classic Hollywood love letter, paying homage to musicals with that tan, but so modern approach. Ryan Gosling is Sebastian Wilder, a jazz pianist who falls in love with a beautiful aspiring actress, Mia Dolan (Emma Stone). The city of Los Angeles is the perfect setting for this romance full of magic, dreams and musical numbers to the «old-fashioned», not to mention that visual display that characterizes the filmmaker. J.K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Rosemarie DeWitt and John Legend, among others, complete the cast of this comedy-drama that ran out of lead Oscars, but did not go unnoticed during the ceremony.
