Cue the Mist

Long before I started reading romance novels, I was a sucker for a romantic scene.

One of my favorites? When Richard Gere's character takes Julia Robert's character on a surprise date in Pretty Woman. He doesn't tell her where they're going, only that it's something that requires nice attire. She puts on a gorgeous gown, he shows up in a tux...and jets (literally) her off to San Francisco to see her very first opera.

Sigh.

But as neat as that scene was, I love the subtle scenes, too--where a look conveys everything you need to know about the depth of love between two characters.

So tell me, what's a movie scene that got you all starry-eyed? And what's one gesture that would make your heart pound or your eyes mist in real life?

Hi Laura,

Great topic. There are so many. Dating myself a little here. The first one that comes to mind is the scene in The Way We Were where Hubble ties Katy's shoe. Not sure why, but the exchange between them and that simple gesture just does it for me.

The scene where Jerry McGuire says....You complete me.

Sigh....

My son's wedding mix had When A Man loves a Woman and we were all trying to remember the movie it was from.

The scene at the very end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the one after the credits where Elizabeth is on the cliff waiting for Will to return.

The Sound of music. Captain Von Trapp takes over dancing with Maria out in the garden the night of the party. The way she looked when she felt his hand on her shoulder, and the way he looked at her started the butterflies swarming. Scenes can be magical.
