When it comes to romance, we got some good choices available to us on lots of Streaming platforms – but is it too much.  So, we aim to narrow it down so you can watch something on either Disney Plus, Netflix or Amazon Prime.

This time, Netflix.  Netflix has a User Interface that is allot clearer and has allot more options available to it.  (At time of writing – all selected films were available on the platform.)

  1. PS I Love You (2007) – This film is pitch perfect in its design and the idea of moving on. This romantic drama focuses on Hilary Swank’s character and her journey of getting over losing her Husband Gerard Butler. Both Swank and Butler’s characters are perfectly played with the film pulling on the heart strings in the right ways.  It ebbs and flows in lovely ways and finds a good centre.
