With consummate rom-com players abound, you know you’re in safe hands with this one! Reese Witherspoon is at her loveable best as a recently separated woman who relocates to Los Angeles and invites a group of young men to bunk at her place – to be fair, how she didn’t see fireworks ahead we just don’t know!

Proof that we Irish can do romance just as well as those glitzy Hollywood types, this tale of 1980s Dublin is a foot-stomping, rip-roaring – and yes, heartwarming – tale of love in the world of rock’n’roll. Drawing on his own experiences as a teenager dreaming of music stardom, John Carney’s film is smartly written, stylishly made and, of course, boasts a soundtrack that takes some beating – just try to keep the air-guitar to a minimum!

Brangelina might be a thing of the past – but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy how it all started! A highly original conceit – a married couple both living secret lives as assassins – makes for a film with considerably more action and excitement than your average rom-com; what truly makes this memorable, however, is the scintillating chemistry between the couple, though we all know the story behind that!

Grab the Kleenex by the fistful – you’ll need it for this one! A sensitive story of a caregiver who falls for a charming paralysed man, the adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel is true to its source as a beautifully heartbreaking tale. If anything, the allure is only intensified by the sparkling connection between Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin; just don’t say we didn’t warn you about the emotional heft here!

With Steve Carell and Tina Fey in the starring roles, you know the ‘com’ side of things is certainly well looked after! Mistaken identity sees the central couple thrown into an action-packed adventure that actually provides some seriously exciting set-pieces; the trump card, though, is in watching the dynamic duo of comedy icons doing their thing.
