3 Famous Young Romances in Movies

Celebrating the airing of The Time for Love, a biographical movie about Marcel Pagnol’s first adventures with love during his teenage years, we have selected three must-see movies following that storyline. These heart-pounding productions will make you relive your first love!

The Notebook

Starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams as a young couple who fall in love in the 1940s, The Notebook follows the story of a poor yet passionate young man who falls in love with a rich young woman, giving her a sense of freedom. Sadly, they are soon separated because of their social differences.

The Notebook received mixed reviews, but performed well at the box office and received a number of award nominations, winning eight Teen Choice Awards, a Satellite Award, and an MTV Movie Award.

Romeo + Juliet

What would Shakespeare think if he saw all his works adapted to modern day cinema? We will never know, but we are sure he will like the rendition of his Romeo and Juliet in the 1996 movie by Baz Luhrmann. This modern adaptation of the English classic stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the leading roles of Romeo and Juliet, who instantly fall in love when Romeo crashes a party and meets her, despite being members of feuding families.

At the 47th Berlin International Film Festival in 1997, DiCaprio won the Silver Bear for Best Actor and Luhrmann won the Alfred Bauer Prize.

Never Let Me Go

Also adapted from literature, Never Let Me Go is a dystopian romantic tragedy film starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield. In the story, three friends share their lives from their early school days into young adulthood, when the reality of the world they live in comes knocking. Raised to be organ donors, the three protagonists become entangled in a love triangle.
