Couples in Film – Top 5 (Courier #15)

28 Mar

5) Wall E and Eve (Wall – E)

One of the best, animated films in recent years, Wall-E is a simple rubbish-collecting robot living in the distant future. He meets Eve and goes along with her to become involved in a mission that will affect mankind forever. They may seem like poles apart, but in this tale of two robots, opposites attract.

4) Jack and Rose (Titanic)

This fated couple meet aboard the ill-fated Titanic on its maiden voyage.  Split by class, they cast aside social boundaries to fall in love and stand on the bow of the doomed liner. Follow their frolicking for over 3 hours and the DiCaprio-Winslet chemistry and fantastic soundtrack will win you over by the end.

3) Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind)

Another old great with another infamous couple; The complex relationship between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh is spread over nearly 4 hours in this Hollywood epic. The ups and downs of the relationship are laid bare as time goes by during and after the Civil War, they may not be perfect but what a vivacious couple they are.

 2) Jesse or Celine (Before Sunrise and Before Sunset)

Jesse (Ethan Hawke), an American backpacker, first meets Celine (Julie Delphy) on a train journey and both their lives are changed forever. They spend one magical night exploring Vienna and meet again in Paris a decade later in the sequel Before Sunset. This couple makes these films witty, charming and utterly unforgettable.

1) Rick Blaine and Elsa Lund (Casablanca)

A classic film featuring a truly classic couple. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman portray two past lovers as they meet again in a gin joint in the Moroccan city of Casablanca. They reminisce over past times thanks to pianist Sam and plenty of drink. A fantastic script and eminently quotable, this couple light up one of Hollywood’s greats.
