If there's one thing I know about love, it's that, when it happens, it does so without reason. And that can also work out pretty great, because it means that love happens at any age. That might seem like a total d'uh statement, but most pieces of entertainment tend to only show attractive teens and 20somethings falling in love. Really, we all deserve to see romantic movies that show older couples falling in love, or at least love stories featuring diverse age ranges and unconventional romances. Whether you're in your golden years yourself, know someone who is, or are just anticipating the future, representation is very important.
It can be all too easy in your 20s, for example, to starting panicking over whether you're ever going to meet someone special or whether you're just going to be swiping away faces on Tinder for all eternity (Seriously. The horror). And movies don't help by showing that everyone's falling in love forever at a young age. Honestly, we could all do with having some patience. Love is unexpected, ladies and gentleman, and it hardly arrives in a way that fits our grand designs for life. It will come and go, and ebb and flow, and it'll happen whenever the hell it likes, at any age. These movies will prove that.
