My favorite movie of all time and cannot stop re-watching; about a love triangle between two wealthy brothers and Sabrina, the beautiful and very sweet daughter of their chauffeur. There's a 1995 remake and that's one worth watching too. (Humphrey Bogart & Audrey Hepburn) (1995: Harrison Ford & Julia Ormond)
Sabrina: It's so strange to think of you being touched by a woman. I always thought you walked alone.
Linus: No man walks alone by choice.
Linus to Sabrina: I think you know I love you
AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER(1957)
Nicky to Terry: There must be something between us; even if it's only an ocean
JANE EYRE (1983)
Charlotte Bronte's story about a governess who falls in love with her employer and vice versa is a popular watch and read on Val's day. It has many adaptations but I recommend the 1983 version starring Timothy Dalton & Zelah Clarke
Edward to Jane: Jane, you strange, almost unearthly thing... I love you!
THE NOTEBOOK (2004)
The very moving story of two people of different classes who fall in love in the 1940's is definitely a must watch! (Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams)
Allie: Do you think our love can take us away together?
Duke/Noah: I think our love can do anything we want it to do.
Another story about a couple of different classes; the main antagonist being a snobbish and evil mother who succeeds in separating the couple after a car accident that ruins the heroine's face. I'm not talking about the Bollywood remake Yeh Vaada Raha starring Rishi Kappor & Poonam Dhillon but the original starring Stephen Collins & Kathleen Quilan and later novelized by Danielle Steel.
Michael: How can I believe such a thing as beauty could die?
Nancy/Marie: Michael... (they kiss)

Keep the tissues handy for this moving story. A man is murdered during a robbery but his ghost keeps watch over his beloved girlfriend as the man responsible for his death is still very much around.
(Patrick Swayze & Demi Moore)
Sam to Molly (as he's about to go to heaven): It's amazing Molly... the love inside, you take it with you.
An interracial couple meet on a blind date and fall in love afterwards but the heroine has to listen to her heart and decide what she really wants; not listen to the opinions of her friends and society. (Saan Lathan & Simon Baker)
Kenya: You're the one I want Brian, I love you.
Brian: I love you too Kenya, I never stopped loving you. (kisses her)
Starring Mel Gibson in one of his earliest roles and Piper Laurie, it's the story about a 20 something rather mentally challenged young man who falls in love with his employer/mother figure; a businesswoman in her 40s; much to the dismay of his older sister.
Memorable moment: Tim and Mary walking along the beach after affirming their love.
PRIDE & PREJUDICE
Jane's Austen's tale of a spirited young woman who falls for a rich snob after an initial dislike for him is always a must watch for Val's day. I recommend the 1995 version starring Colin Firth & Jennifer Ehle.
Liz: Perhaps I didn't always love him as well as I do now but in such cases as these a good memory is unpardonable.
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE(1999)
