Ending a relationship is never easy. And each person reacts differently. There are people who stay in the pit, there are people who take it well, but need a little time, and there are people who will move on to another relationship soon. Either way, the cinema is always a good friend for those who need that support after a yard ends.
CinePOP has separated ten movies that are perfect for those leaving a relationship. Of course, there are people who prefer to drown their sorrows in drama or watch brainless action, but we’ve chosen to focus our attention (with a few exceptions) on light, fun pieces that send an upbeat message about them. relationships. Feature films even shatter the idea of what a happy ending would be. What really matters is the journey of the characters.
Check out our list below! And don’t forget to say in the comments what are your favorite movies to deal with when a relationship ends.
(500 days with her
(500) Dias com Ela looks like that traditional romantic comedy, but it’s more than that. It’s a film that shows the danger of idealizing a relationship and thinking that you can change the other. It’s also a feature film about the importance of being honest with your intentions from the start. Joseph Gordon-Levitt saw a guy who bet all his chips on a relationship with Zooey Deschanel, who from the start made it clear that he is not looking for the love of his life. In the end, even in the face of a painful separation, we see that the important thing is to move on. After summer, there is always autumn.
The devil wears Prada
Romance is far from the most important in The Devil Wears Prada, although the message of avoiding the boy who doesn’t support you is more than present. But Andrea’s (Anne Hathaway) journey is perfect for motivating those in the pit. It’s a film about finding and reaffirming yourself, things that a lot of people have to deal with after a relationship ends. Here, the protagonist breaks a cycle of addiction and professional abuse, something easily transferable for dating. Sometimes it’s better to be alone and the movie shows that very clearly.
The wedding of my best friend
A classic of ’90s romantic comedies, My Best Friend’s Wedding is another film about the dangers of idealizing a relationship and treating a person as possession. After coming and going, this ends up being a feature film about how often you better end up dancing with a friend at a party. Julia Roberts’ character ends up building, in her head, a relationship that doesn’t exist, just out of fear of being alone or not finding someone else. The film, however, makes it clear that this is not the way. And that it is better to be alone.
the fabulous destiny of Amelie Poulain
Cinema, in most cases, treats loneliness as something foreign, as a problem that the protagonist has to solve. But, like in real life, it’s not always bad to be alone. So, instead of embarking on a cliché story in which a woman does not complete herself until she finds Prince Charming, nothing better than to watch The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain. The French drama shows that it is possible to find happiness in small things, without depending on the other. A delicate and moving performance by Audrey Tautou.
The revenge of a blonde
Legally Blonde presents every girl’s dream of revenge abused or devalued by the trash boy. Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods, a young woman who enters Harvard Law School in an attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend, who left her so as not to be “too serious.” The traditional romantic comedy could end with the resumption of the subject by Elle, but here the character goes through a journey of rediscovery. And develop self-esteem. Sometimes all you have to do is trust yourself more. If the person next to you lets you down, you better move on.
Love Hangover … Here’s a title that can be used to describe many relationship endings. And the film can also help this most helpless heart. The romantic comedy starring Jason Segel, Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis tells the story of a guy left behind by his girlfriend for several years. To overcome the separation, he travels to Hawaii. There he ends up meeting his ex with a new partner. In the midst of a crisis, he meets a new woman, but more than that: he discovers his self-esteem. And he also becomes capable of self-criticism, taking some of the responsibility for ending the first relationship. Behind the story is the message that there is no point in loving a person and forgetting to take care of yourself.
Under the Tuscan sun
It’s okay that not everyone can handle the end of a relationship by buying a farm in Italy (I wish they could!), But that’s not the message from Under the Tuscan Sun. In the plot, Diane Lane sees a writer who goes into crisis after discovering her husband’s infidelity. Motivated by her friends, she ended up accepting a trip to Italy. There, impulsively, he ends up buying a property, which he will have to renovate with his own hands. It is a journey of rediscovery and, above all, a victory against the idea that it is too late to live. It’s beautiful, fun and always with its notes of romance. Ideal for those looking to move on.
Eternal Sunshine of the Flawless Spirit
Winner of the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is very intelligent and mature relationship work. He talks about the possibility of erasing people from his memory, which many newly separated people can relate to. But, in the end, it shows that as painful as the separation and the absence of this business may be, it is always better to have been through it. The film also addresses several elements of relationships, such as the notion that one must complement the other or the dependence that forms in a relationship. The cast features the big appearances of Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst and Mark Ruffalo.
La La Land
The beautiful musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone sounds like the perfect love story. But it’s also a photo of “not all fairy tales have a happy ending”. But everything is fine! The film, in a way, is an adaptation of the classic phrase “may it be eternal while it lasts”. La La Land presents a cinematic novel, but with a real conclusion. Couples don’t always end up together, and that doesn’t erase the great trip they’ve had. For newcomers to a relationship, it can be difficult to jump into such a romantic story, but it also shows the value one person can have in each other’s lives, even if they don’t end up side by side. coast.
Skipping past the profile of previous films, we can only recommend Exemplary Girl to complete the list. This goes for those who don’t want to know about comedies or romances. So, nothing better than this beautiful thriller directed by David Fincher. Here’s a story that proves that it’s better to be single than in a toxic relationship. Just think that you might be with a guy who is cheating on you. Or with a psychopath who forges his own death and blames you. There is no doubt that in either case, celibacy is the best way to go. You don’t have to stay on the bad side.
