Firstly, we can all agree that breakups are some of the hardest times in our lives. We hurt, we sob, we look for comfort. And there are few better ways to find it than by crawling up in bed to escape through a movie.
So whether you need to laugh, cry or channel your rage (or you know someone who does), we’ve put together a list of the 10 breakup films on Stan.
Watch the trailer for Blue Valentine here. Post continues below.
There’s a reason this one is at the top of the list, and that’s because it’s the perfect film for the crying phase. You know, when your friends want you to go out and grab a drink, but you’d much prefer to stay in bed and have a good cry? This is the movie for that moment.
By watching Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling’s complicated love unfold, it will reassure you that real relationships don’t always have a happy, Hollywood ending (like every other rom-com out there). But be prepared for the waterworks.
Now, time for something much more upbeat, funny and seriously empowering for the ladies. Legally Blonde is an all-time classic and seriously one of the best breakup movies.
Watching Elle Woods go through a breakup is not only #relatable but then to get into Harvard Law School and dominate, will remind you that you can do it all on your own.
