Here are movies best suited for your date night

1. If you have no strings attached: 50 Shades Darker by James Foley

Fifty Shades Darker

In part two of the S&M-filled drama, we find a wounded Christian Grey doing his best to get Anastasia Steele back into his life. Just as she starts to trust him again, Anastasia realises she also has to deal with the women who came before her.

2. For the same-sex couple: Call Me By Your Name by Luca Guadagnino

Call Me By Your Name

A tender, coming-of-age film set in the summer of 1983 in Italy. Elio, 17, finds himself increasingly drawn to the much-older Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who’s working as an intern for Elio’s father. Love ensues and things are never the same again.

3. For the mismatched ones: The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro

The Shape Of Water

This film is about love knowing no boundaries. Elisa is a lonely, mute janitor at a top-secret government laboratory in 1962 in Baltimore, whose life drastically changes when she finds love with a ‘creature’ in a water tank.

4. For the creative kinds: Loving Vincent by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman

Loving Vincent

This is a unique film where every frame has been hand-painted – an artistic retelling about the last days of Vincent van Gogh. The mystery surrounding his death, the women he encountered, and through it all, the paintings that only posthumously brought him so much fame.

5. If you are multicultural: Get Out by Jordan Peele

Get Out

This satirical horror will make you cuddle up. When it’s time to meet his girlfriend’s white parents, African-American Chris wonders if they’ll freak out about their daughter dating a black man. But his girlfriend assures him all is cool at her parent’s secluded home in the woods – until things horrifically unfurl.
