30 Day Film Challenge/Day 21

Today the challenge is a film that made me want to fall in love.

There are a lot of romantic movies out there. Wonderful old black and white classics as well as some more contemporary films are easy to find. There are romantic movies with tragic endings and movies of unrequieted love. Of course a good romantic movie can make you laugh (When Harry Met Sally) or might make you cry (Love Story) but they do not make me want to fall in love.

Innocent love for me is the purest of love. The kind where love is the anchor of everything and it makes the entire world delightful. So, for this category I chose “Benny and Joon” starring a very young Johnny Depp and the lovely Mary Stuart Masterson. It depicts the love worth fighting for even when the world tells you how incapable you are at loving.

I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the twenty-first day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!
