Reason we chose it: Nicholas Sparks rarely disappoints with his books turned movies that not only show the struggles of true love, but also the tragic consequences that can arise while fighting for it.

Something Borrowed (2011)

Description: This romantic comedy raises the question of whether love is more important than friendship when forever single Rachel falls for her best friend’s fiancé.
