200 Love Lessons from the Movies – Staying Moonstruck for Life
Romantic movies—no matter how fluffy or fanciful— contain some kernel of truth about real-life love. These films are fictionalized accounts of the collective romantic experiences of everyone involved in the filmmaking process, so even average movies can provide spectacular insights for every stage of romance from first dates to wedding planning.
In her new book, 200 Love Lessons from the Movies, author Leslie C. Halpern helps make our favorite movies even more enjoyable by showing us the nugget of relationship wisdom in them. Whether the movie features an unforgettable date (My Date with Drew), odd first meetings (Wimbledon), or a particularly stormy breakup (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Halpern steers the reader toward a valuable lesson to be learned.
