12 Long-Distance Relationship Movies to Watch Together In Sync Online
There’s nothing quite as romantic as the notion of love so powerful that it can withstand the test of distance and time. That kind of love takes nurturing, devotion, and patience. One of the best ways you can stay connected to your long-distance partner and keep the spark alive is by having virtual date nights — and what better date than a movie that relates to your own situation?
Here are 12 long-distance love stories we recommend that you watch with your long-distance partner to give you both the hope and encouragement you need. They’re sure to bring the two of you closer together despite your physical separation.
Going the Distance
If you loved 50 First Dates or The Wedding Singer, you’re bound to love Going the Distance. Starring Drew Barrymore, this is the story of two career-driven people who weren’t looking for a relationship. What started as a casual hookup turns into a long-distance romance and tells the story of how the couple is able to keep their love alive while leading separate lives in different places of the world.
Anne Hathaway brings a reassuring familiarity and sense of character to her films. One Day follows Emma and Dexter — two friends from college who reunite once each year for 20 years to celebrate the day they met. The movie tells a beautiful story that underscores the importance of friendship in an enduring love and points out how often we lose sight of the happiness that’s right under our noses.
Like Crazy is about a pair of love-struck students, Anna and Jacob. The two are suddenly and tragically torn apart by the terms of a visa, which sends Anna back home to London. The couple finds that, no matter what earthly forces try to drive them apart, they always manage to find their way back to each other.
Novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks has a way with love stories. Dreamy Channing Tatum and darling Amanda Seyfried star in this tear-jerking chick flick. Savannah and John’s relationship is tested when John, a soldier in the army, is deployed after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. The two keep in touch via letters, but letters can only keep their relationship afloat for so long.
Sleepless in Seattle
Imagine falling in love with someone you heard on the radio. That’s exactly what happens to Annie (played by Meg Ryan) in the 1993 favorite Sleepless in Seattle when she hears Sam (played by Tom Hanks) talk about his relatable feelings on a late-night talk radio program. Find out how these two strangers make their way to each other in the bustling city of Seattle.
The best relationships are the ones that overcome the odds that seem to be stacked against them. This is the case for Noah and Allie, portrayed by Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Noah is called to serve in the military in World War II, but this is far from where their relationship ends. Years later, the two find each other again, but Allie is engaged. Will they find their way back to each other? Watch The Notebook, another riveting Nicholas Sparks romance, to find out.
You’ve Got Mail
Meeting online isn’t all that unusual these days, but in the 1990s, it certainly wasn’t the norm. Another Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan smash, You’ve Got Mail is about two booksellers who fall in love online only to realize they are rivals in real life. How will they manage to reconcile their disdain for each other with the feelings they’ve developed through their emails?
The Time Traveler’s Wife
Romance and science fiction collide in the best of ways in The Time Traveler’s Wife. Henry and Clare are deeply in love, but Henry’s genetic disorder causes him to involuntarily travel through time. This creates complications in his relationship with his wife — and their ability to have children. Will a series of sporadic visits be enough to sustain their relationship?
The Other End of the Line
In The Other End of the Line, Priya, an Indian call center agent, falls in love with Granger, an American playboy, over the phone while working. He eventually invites her out to San Francisco where they have a whirlwind romance. All isn’t as easy as it seems, though, as they must overcome cultural differences and familial disapproval. Find out if they’re able to successfully merge their worlds and make their love work.
A Very Long Engagement
If you had reason to believe your true love may have survived a deadly event despite being reported dead, how far would you go to look for them? Based on a novel, A Very Long Engagement follows Mathilde as she searches France for her fiance after World War I.
The Lake House
