Directed By: David Lowery

Top Cast: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster

IMDb Rating: 7.1/10

Our Take: This movie is brimmed with intense emotions and heart-touching sentiments. Cassey Affleck cruises ahead with his acting persona that is vivid in his character in the movie, same goes for Rooney Mara. If you thought Rooney Mara delivered a stunning performance in The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, you might wanna see this movie, I bet you’ll be surprised with how she adapts to her character in this one. A truly immaculate piece of storytelling, indeed!

Top Cast: Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Kyle Chandler

IMDb Rating: 7.6/10

Our Take: This may appear a usual love story where a flamboyant boy meets a fastidious girl, but believe me it is way superior than that. It is packed with awe-inspiring story. A coming of age love story that will certainly leave you with tears.

 

5. Before Midnight [2013]

Directed By: Richard Linklater

Top Cast: Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick

IMDb Rating: 8.4/10

Our Take: Before Midnight is the threequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. It is an entirely different cinema – character centric and dialogue-driven romance drama that runs deeper than its facade. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawn bring back the magic of their previous movies of the similar essence. A true cinematic delight.

 

6. K!ll Your Darlings [2013]

Kill Your Darlings top best romance movies 2013 15 Top & Best Romantic / Love Movies of 2013 So Far

IMDb Rating: 7.1/10

Our Take: Finally, Daniel Radcliffe is out of the teenage sensation that Harry Potter character had registered him for. It is yet to be released in United States, but I was fortunate to catch a screening for this. A great story of love, envy, friendship and malice.

 

7. To The Wonder [2013]

Directed By: Terrence Malick

Top Cast: Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem

IMDb Rating: 6.2/10

Our Take: Terrence Malik who is known for his own style of storytelling, does that again in To The Wonder. For those who’re questioning Ben Affleck’s selection as Batman, might want to see this movie to know that he’s gotten maturer in his acting. Great cast, great story and great performance. I wonder why this movie is so underrated on the Internet.

 

8. Beautiful Creatures [2013]

IMDb Rating: 6.4/10
