1. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
This is a 2008 romantic comedy-drama film, based on Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's novel of the same name. It's about two teenagers, Nick (Michael Cera) and Norah (Kat Dennings), who meet by accident at a bar when Norah asks Nick to pretend to be her boyfriend for five minutes.

The Beatles, they had it all figured out, okay? "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", the first single, it's effing brilliant, right? That's what everybody wants, Nick. They don't want a twenty four-hour hump sesh, they don't want to be married to you for a hundred years. They just want to hold your hand.
2. (500) Days of Summer
This film centers on a writer at a greeting card company named Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who falls in love with his boss' new assistant, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel). It is presented in a nonlinear narrative, as it jumps from random and various times within 500 days of Tom and Summer's label-less friendship/relationship. She helps Tom to see the world differently, before accidentally tangling him into a one-sided love story.
People change, feelings change. It doesn't mean that the love once shared wasn't true and real. It simply means that sometimes, when people grow, they grow apart.
3. Love, Rosie
It's the film adaptation of Cecelia Ahern's second novel, Where Rainbows End. The movie revolves around two best friends from childhood, Alex Stewart (Sam Claflin) and Rosie Dunne (Lily Collins). One day, Rosie gets pregnant after their high school graduation over a one night stand, followed by Alex's departure to Boston.

You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you're doing, where you are, who you're with and if you're okay.
The movie was released on 2010, as the film adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen's famous novel of the same name. It starts Callan McAuliffe as Bryce Loski and Madeline Carroll as Julianna Baker. Juli has always loved Bryce, aggressively, ever since his family moved to her neighborhood. Unfortunately, Bryce is a girl-phobic, sometimes embarrassed boy who doesn't seem to be comfortable around her. After chasing Bryce for the next few years, she starts to question her true feelings about Bryce, while he starts to open up to Juli's aggressive gestures.
Every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.

This movie depicts that a long-distance relationship isn't always as easy as it seems.
Because it's the halves that halve you in half. I didn't know, I don't know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.
