ME BEFORE YOU
Starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, Me Before You is a film adaptation of the tear-jerker book that tells the story of Will Traynor (Claflin), a once-successful man who becomes paralyzed after a motorcycle accident, and his relationship with a whimsical caretaker, Lou Clark (Clarke). The unlikely pair forms an unbreakable bond – and you'll have to see it to find out what happens next.

While the majority of Up leaves us feeling inspired, it's the first 10 minutes of the film that really tug at our heartstrings thanks to Carl and Ellie, whose love story (from childhood to adulthood) is beautifully recounted and sets the tone for the rest of the film.

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
You'll want to keep a box of tissues handy while watching The Fault in Our Stars. Penned by John Green, this heartbreaking book-to-movie adaptation tells the tale of Gus (Ansel Elgort) and Hazel (Shailene Woodley), two teenage cancer patients who meet in a support group, take a life-changing trip to Amsterdam and fall in love despite their terminal diagnoses.

A WALK TO REMEMBER
As is the case with most Nicholas Spark books, A Walk to Remember proves once more that opposites do attract and make for an awe-inspiring and equally heart-wrenching big-screen pairing. Mandy Moore's Jamie and Shane West's Landon convinced us to go beyond our comfort zone – despite how badly the film's ending made us weep.

A.k.a. the film that made us believe in true love. Aside from giving us major #relationshipgoals and a new bullet to add to our bucket list (ahem, kissing in the pouring rain after rowing in a boat, surrounded by ducks), The Notebook also had us rooting for Ryan Gosling (Noah) and Rachel McAdams (Allie), who famously dated off-screen.

BOYS DON'T CRY
Hilary Swank plays Brandon Teena, a transgender teen who finds love with a girl named Lana (Chloë Sevigny) while starting a new life in Nebraska. The unconditional love shared between the characters is one to admire, especially since Lana finds out about Brandon's being transgender halfway into their relationship.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON
Aging is a pretty bittersweet, inevitable part about being human – but imagine having to age in reverse, and get younger as everyone around you grows older. We've never felt so lonely while watching a movie, or more grateful for future wrinkles. Cue the tears.

While Still Alice isn't a movie that focuses on a romantic relationship, it still touches upon the loving connection shared between a formerly distant daughter (Kristen Stewart) and her ailing mother, Alice (Julianne Moore), who suffers from advancing Alzheimer's.

Do we even need to explain this one? Jack and Rose – played by IRL besties Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet – found love aboard the ill-fated Titanic, despite being of different social classes. Also, Titanic gave us the famous line "I'll never let go," which we've been using in every possible situation since – we're not crying, you're crying.
