There are classic rom coms in Hollywood we often trip over. There are scenes that still get the audience swooning. For instance- Mark flashing a “To Me You Are Perfect” note to Juliet in Love Actually or the I’ll have what she’s having” moment in Harry Met Sally. No matter how many times we come across these scenes, there is a momentary gush of feelings.

But we often miss out on movies that drown in the noise caused by these cult classics. We keep chasing after the relatable feelgoods when there are troves of new feelings to experience. Here is a list of the rarest romantic films that you should be binging over this Valentines.

It’s time you meet your feelings head-on!
