Romantic Epics

Be it the grand scale, the inflamed passions, or their universal themes, romantic epics have traditionally made for some of the most irresistible Oscar bait. That trend has been somewhat bucked in recent years, but there's something about the stillness of winter that feels like the proper time to sit down with some globe-spanning, heart-rending sagas.

Jennifer's Body

Directed by Karyn Kusama

Horror Comedy, Teen Movie - Rated R - 102 Minutes - 2009

Maligned upon release by those put off by Diablo Cody's dialogue and the Megan Fox of it all -- male critics couldn't resist commenting on her body instead of the story -- Jennifer's Body plays pretty well in 2018. It's been adopted as a touchstone by bisexual viewers who see themselves in Amanda Seyfried's wide-eyed, yearning Anita, and proudly places its feminist perspective front and center. Director Karyn Kusama has continued her trajectory with this winter's acclaimed Destroyer. (Available on HBO Go)
