1. Blue Jay (2016)
If you like the prolific Duplass brothers, chances are you’ll fall for their black & white flick about high school sweethearts reuniting as adults and strolling down memory lane. Metascore: 69

 Metascore: 84

13. Atonement
An epic love totally ruined by a jealous little brat. Metascore: 85

14. Shakespeare in Love
Ugh, do we have to nominate a Gwenyth Paltrow film? It’s a charming love story with British accents, beautiful costumes and seven freakin’ Academy Awards to its name, including Best Picture! So while it pains us to do so, we guess we have to. Metascore: 87 

15. Blue Is the Warmest Color
This critically acclaimed film about young, imperfect love from France took a lot of heat for its treatment of lesbian sexuality by a straight, male and some say tyrannical director.  Metascore: 88
