Pride and Prejudice

We're pretty sure you will have heard of this one already. 

 Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is one of the greatest British love stories of all time and the on-screen adaptions are excellent. 

Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen (who later starred in Succession) are absolutely excellent as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, artfully illustrating their growing romance as it unfolds. 

What better way to see out Valentine's Day evening than one of the all-time great love stories. 

Atonement

Kiera Knightly appearing twice as a star on this list is a testament to her excellence: no one does a romantic period movie better than here.

In this example, the story is set in 1935, just before WWII, and follows a forbidden love story between Robbie, a lowly housekeeper's son and Cecilia, a rich heiress.

Everything goes wrong for Robbie, ensuring that heartbreak and unrequited love are the order of the day for this one. We don't want to spoil anything so go and watch it for yourself.

Tamara Drewe

The newest entrant on this list is the entertaining romcom Tamara Drewe, which is loosely based on Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd.

There's betrayal, heartbreak, and a good deal of laughs along the way. While Tamara Drewe is perhaps the cheesiest movie on this list, there's nothing wrong with a bit of cheese, especially on Valentine's Day.

Plus, as a bonus, you get to watch a young Luke Evans.
