If you've ever browsed the Documentary section on your Netflix account, then you know that the majority of the docs available to stream are on one of two subjects: Nazis and serial killers. Lighthearted documentaries are hard to come by in general, let alone on Netflix. But, don't give up hope yet, romantics — fun and romance might be hard to find on Netflix, but the genre is far from dead. For your viewing pleasure, I've found the nine most romantic documentaries on Netflix right now, listed below.
Before we get to the list of romantic documentaries, a disclaimer: I took a somewhat liberal definition of romantic. When I think of romance and movies, I think of love stories, of boy meets girl (or boy meets boy, girl meets girl, etc.). But, romance isn't necessarily about attraction and love — it can be about familial love. For example, there's something romantic about watching a mother fall in love with her child, or watching someone honor the one they love. Documentaries don't have to be about a traditional couple to be truly romantic. With that said, here are the nine most romantic documentaries on Netflix available to stream right now.
