BW: Reel Love

by Jesi V. Taylor

Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’, a tongue-in-cheek and visually stunning romantic dramedy about a hopeless romantic writer dealing with a mid-life crisis and the affections of two vastly different women, is just one of myriad romance films set in New York City. It’s no wonder, it’s a city of beautiful sights and millions of people just waiting to be swept off their feet or knocked head over heels. Outside of the city, though, romance lingers in the reel world and offers an exciting journey for the hopeless romantics, film critics and movie goers…or Netflixers. What’s not to love about love? Especially when you’re not the one dealing with its ups and downs. (We all know it’s worth it, though.)
