Best Historical Romantic Movies on Netflix

I love romantic movies! Especially those with an actual plot, good character development, and realistic emotion. Here are some historical romantic movies I’ve found on Netflix that I gave a thumbs up.

Running for Grace (2018) TV-14

Set in Hawaii, a half-Japanese boy falls in love with the daughter of a rich plantation owner. A lot of the film is about the boy’s relationship with a physician who takes him in as an orphan. It’s heart-warming.

Dare to be Wild (2015) PG

Based on the true story of an Irish woman who wins a prestigious gardening contest in London called the Chelsea Flower Show. The romance is between her and a young activist who is trying to turn the hills of Africa green again after deforestation. While this movie is romantic, the romance was more realistic and less of a sweeping love story. However, if you like gardening, you will like this!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) TV-14

A British writer is torn between her American fiance and a widower on the previously nazi-occupied island of Guernsey. As she dives deeper into the town’s stories about what happened there in WWII, she falls in love with all aspects of Guernsey.

The Lovers (2013) R

A two-dimensional time story that flips between a marine archeologist’s current life in the U.S. and a past life in 18th century India. Of course, there’s a magic ring that sets it all into motion and two romances.

It is rated R for some violence and language but has no nudity.

I have been to India, so I do have a special heart for stories based there.
