10 Best Historical Romance Films to Watch This Valentine’s Day

Falling In Love Has Always Been Romantic

by Livia Lozoya | Collider | February 9, 2022

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 Spotted at Brasserie Zédel Last Night – Feb 14, 2018

A Valentine’s Day in Memoriam Tribute: A Play on Words

by Gingersnap | | February 14, 2018

According to this Tweet, Damian joined Hal Cazalet, singer, actor, composer and lyricist, as a surprise guest at London’s Brasserie Zedel last night in honor of P.G. Wodehouse, who passed away on Valentine’s Day in 1975.  P.G. Wodehouse is one of the great writers of the twentieth century, best known for the Jeeves and Wooster characters. And it seems Damian lent his singing chops for all the Brasserie Zedel guests to hear. According to their website, Brasserie Zedel is a Parisian brewery, American bar and cabaret that serves traditional French food surrounded by a historic Beaux Arts/Art Deco interior.
