Mature Romantic Movies for A More Mature Crowd on Valentine’s Day

Movies about older couples in love or finding love are a natural for Valentine's Day viewing.
Older audiences enjoy many of the same things younger audiences do, including a little romance now and then. The difference is mature viewers, like their counterparts in the films, have experienced many of life’s stages and are looking for something with a little deeper meaning or a little levity that pokes fun at life. These are among my favorite romances featuring somewhat older characters or stars.
Mature Romance #5 Murphy’s Romance – Starring James Garner and Sally Field, Murphy’s romance finds Emma relocating to a new town with her son to start life over after a divorce. Shaken and unsure of herself, she starts a horse ranch and wants to work as a horse trainer. She also meets Murphy Jones, the town druggist, an older man with a slow and steady disposition. He takes a liking to her and slowly starts wooing her, until her ex turns up and throws things topsy turvy.

Mature Romance #4 It’s Complicated Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin give knockout performances as three people caught up in an unlikely love triangle. Divorced for many years and brought together by their son’s college graduation, Streep and Baldwin find themselves in bed together and having an affair. The tables are turned and she is now the other woman. Martin plays Streep’s other love interest. This comedy is worth seeing and I won’t spoil the ending for you.
