Best romantic movies: About Time

Release Year: 2013 

Directed by Richard Curtis 

Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, and Vaness Kirby 

About Time premiered in 2013. Richard Curtis wrote the screenplay for the movie and also directed the movie. The movie has such a great cast and an excellent story.

In the movie, Tim, played by Gleeson, learns, on his 21st birthday that he has the power to go back in time. After going back in time to help a friend, he accidentally erases the time he met Mary, played by Rachel McAdams. Tim, convinced that Mary is the one, tries to manipulate time and find a way to be with her.

As we know from all superhero and time travel movies, manipulating the timeline isn’t always a good idea, even when the user has the best intentions.

About Time is probably my favorite movie on this list. It’s just so, so, so good. Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams are awesome in this movie.

If you watch one movie on Netflix from this list of the best romantic movies on Netflix, make sure you watch About Time. It’s so good. I know I already said that, but it’s just true.
