Sappy lovey movie quotes
I’ve been pretty melodramatic the last couple of days, so what better way to drown in my own sorrow than to watch repeatedly the most heartbreaking scenes in some of my favourite films.
Here’s my little collection
1. Alice and Dan- Closer (2004)
Alice: Can I still see you?
Alice: Dan can I still see you? Answer me.
Dan: I can’t see you. If I see you I’ll never leave you.
Alice: What will you do if I find someone else?
Dan: Be jealous.
Alice: You still fancy me?
Dan: … Of Course
Alice: You’re lying. I’ve been you? Will you hold me?
Alice: I amuse you but I bore you?
Alice: You did love me?
Dan: I’ll always love you. I hate hurting you.
Alice: Then why are you?
Dan: Because I’m selfish, and I think I’ll be happier with her.
Alice: You won’t. You’ll miss me. No one will ever love me as much as I do. Why isn’t love enough?
Alice: I’m the one who leaves, I’m supposed to leave you. I’m the one who leaves.
Alice: Make some tea, Buster.
2. Sarah and Borden – The Prestige (2006)
Alfred Borden: Everything’s going to be alright, because I love you very much.
Sarah: Say it again.
Alfred Borden: I love you.
Sarah: Not today.
Alfred Borden: What do you mean?
Sarah: Well some days it’s not true. Maybe today you’re more in love with magic. I like being able to tell the difference, it makes the days it is true mean something.
Alfred Borden: I love you.
Sarah: You mean it today.
Alfred Borden: Of course.
Sarah: It just makes it so much harder when you don’t.
3. Sara Crewe and her Father- A Little Princess (1995)
Sara: Papa, don’t you remember me? Papa, please! You’ve got to know me! It’s Sara, remember? Remember India and Maya? Remember the Ramayana… and Emily? And the locket with Mama’s picture?
4. Astrid finds Claire dead- White Oleander (2002)
Astrid, who’s biological mother committed murder, has been placed through revolving foster homes for years and is unable to form a trusting relationship, until she is fostered by Claire Richards, a kind and unconditionally loving foster parent. Unfortunately, Claire has a dependent personality disorder and when her husband leaves the family, she overdoses, leaving Astrid all alone again.
5. GIA (1998)
Based on a true story about the tragic life of Gia Maria Carangi (1960-1986). Angelina Jolie plays the role of one of America’s first supermodels who struggles with separation issues due to her mother leaving her at a very young age. She is discovered by Whilemina models and moves to New York where she gets chewed up and spat out by the merciless world of modelling, and becomes one of the first recorded victims to the AIDS virus due to her addiction to Heroin. I wanted to find the scene from the movie where Wilhelmina Cooper dies and the devastated Gia relapses back in to her life-grappling addiction but couldn’t find it, so this montage will have to do.
Too beautiful to die, too wild to live
6. The Tragic Life of Edie Sedgwick- Factory Girl (2006)
Edie Sedgwick: I went to a party once, and there was a palm reader there and when she looked at my hand, she just froze. And I said to her “I know. My lifeline is broken. I know I won’t live past thirty
Andy Warhol: I wonder if people are going to remember us?
Edie Sedgwick: What, when we’re dead?
Andy Warhol: Yeah.
Edie Sedgwick: Well I think people will talk about how you changed the world.
Andy Warhol: I wonder what they’ll say about you… in your obituary. I like that word.
Edie Sedgwick: Nothing nice, I don’t think.
Andy Warhol: No no, come on. They’d say, “Edith Minturn Sedgwick: beautiful artist and actress…
Edie Sedgwick: …and all around loon.
Andy Warhol: …Remembered for setting the world on fire…
Edie Sedgwick: …and escaping the clutches of her terrifying family…
Andy Warhol: …Made friends with eeeeverybody, and anybody…
Edie Sedgwick: …creating chaos and uproar wherever she went. Divorced as many times as she married, she leaves only good wishes behind.
Edie Sedgwick: That’s nice, isn’t it?
7. Allie and Noah- The Notebook (2004)
Allie: Why didn’t you write me? Why? It wasn’t over for me, I waited for you for seven years. But now it’s too late.
Noah: I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you everyday for a year.
Allie: You wrote me?
Noah: Yes… it wasn’t over, it still isn’t over
