I love the diversity on this list. If you’re a sucker for a good love story, then you definitely need to check out all the movies on Andrew’s list.
Following the history of cinema, you must have noticed that almost all love stories are alike. A boy meets a girl, they fall in love with each other, and after having some misunderstandings they finally decide to live happily after. However, there are some movies, where the stories aren’t so predictable and ordinary. We’d like to offer you a list of the most unique movies about love.
King Kong (2005)

The movie tells about the love between two cowboys, who herd sheep together. As it is 1960s, the people around can’t understand such relationships and gay love is forbidden.
