Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with your significant other, your friends, or even by yourself, you’ll want a good movie to watch. Why not time travel and indulge in some historical romance? Movies like Titanic and The Notebook are some good choices, or maybe even a good rom-com like The Proposal or Never Been Kissed. While the films in this list are a little less iconic, they will still bring the romance and most importantly, transport you to a different time and place.

 Romeo and Juliet (2013)

While Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 and Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 adaptations of the iconic Shakespeare story are classics in their own right, Carlo Carlei’s Romeo and Juliet is a bit underrated. While it received mixed reviews because of its additions and omissions to the script, this adaptation offers a fresh take on the story for a new generation while still being set in fair Verona.

Led by Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld, the cast also includes Damian Lewis, Stellan Skarsgård, and Paul Giamatti. The film was beautifully shot on location in Verona and is a worthy addition to the Romeo and Juliet catalog.

Damian Lewis opens our conversation with a sheepish mention of his ardent admirers. ‘I’ve a set of fans who call themselves – you’re not allowed to laugh – Damian Bunnies.’ Their name seems to be a reference to those other copper-top characters, the Duracell Bunnies. They have been following him since his 2001 breakthrough in Steven Spielberg’s acclaimed Second World War series Band of Brothers, ‘and they’re absolutely lovely. In the end, I realised they knew so much about me, I let two of them run a fan site.’
