Loretta Castorini has a big decision to make when her fiance, Johnny, visits Sicily to see his dying mother. You will laugh and cry with the big personalities of these Italian-American characters.


Romeo and Juliet


Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the most romantic piece of literature known to date. The 1996 version is a modern twist on the tale, but uses the same dialogue. Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t too bad to look at either.


Letters to Juliet


This film possesses all of Emme’s favorite things: Romeo and Juliet, writing, love, and Italy! Cue beautiful Italian scenery and a story that tells us that true love never dies.

The Wedding Singer

Ever After


Ever After sheds life to the classic Disney film. Barrymore, as Cinderella, is locked away as a servant for her stepmother and step sisters after her father’s death. Like the classic tale, she meets dreamy Prince Henry who doesn’t know she’s a servant. Emme loves Leonardo da Vinci as Cinderella’s fairy godmother.

What’s better than a classic Disney love story? From battles, magical kisses, to singing in the forest, Disney love stories are bewitching!

The Princess Diaries 1 & 2

2001, 2004

A Walk to Remember


Sweet and innocent Jamie Sullivan falls for bad boy Landon Carter. Like every epic love, it must come to an abrupt halt when Landon realizes Jamie has cancer. This movie will tug on your heart-strings.
