An affair to remember

Well, that was a productive sunday. I just finished watching the movie “An Affair to Remember” for the first time. Have you seen it? If you’re interested it’s on streaming on Netflix. Here’s the trailer:

The movie stars my favorite actor of all time, Cary Grant, in one of the most romantic movies I’ve ever seen. The leading female role is played by Deborah Kerr and I couldn’t get over the witty banter between the two stars. Here was one of my favorite bits:
Nickie Ferrante: 
Oh you know, this couldn’t be nicer. You saved my life, I was bored to death. I hadn’t seen one attractive woman on this ship since we left, now isn’t that terrible? I was alarmed. I said to myself, don’t beautiful women travel anymore? And then I saw you. And I was saved, I hope.
Terry McKay:
Tell me, have you been getting results with a line like that? Or would I be surprised?

The movie follows these two stars as they meet unexpectedly and fall in love under impossible circumstances. The pair vow to meet in six months at the top of the empire state building where, after sorting out their separate lives, they can finally be together. Sounds familiar right? Probably because it reminds you a lot of this movie here, Before Sunset. I was in love throughout the whole movie and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an escape from all this march madness.
