Sure, love is nice. But when there’s no romance to be found IRL, it’s time to turn to the silver screen. From teen stories that will make you weep to rom-coms that poke fun at, well, rom-coms, here are 17 of the most romantic movies coming in 2019.

1

Isn’t It Romantic? (February 13)

If you want to see all the traditional rom-com tropes upended but still get your happy ending, Isn’t It Romantic will cater very nicely to you. It will also give you the glorious vision of Liam Hemsworth playing the saxophone. You didn’t even know you wanted that in your life, right?

Five Feet Apart (March 15)

This Fault in Our Starsesque movie will have you full of feels. Starring Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse as two teenagers with cystic fibrosis, it tells the heartwarming tale of the duo as they try to stick to their boundaries (the “five feet” in the title is the distance they’re supposed to keep from each other) while they fall in love.

Someone Great (April 19)

Get your girls together and add this movie to your Netflix queue.

Under the Silver Lake (April 19)

This isn’t your typical romantic movie. It might seem like a classic boy-meets-girl film, but there’s a twist: The girl disappears with no trace. Andrew Garfield stars as Sam, the bereft young man who goes into the depths of L.A. to crack the code of Sarah’s (Riley Keough) disappearance.

The Sun Is Also a Star (May 17)

Get your tissues ready—this one’s going to make you cry forever.

The film is based on a YA novel of the same name, by Nicola Yoon.

Always Be My Maybe (May 29)

If you loved Ali Wong’s comedy special Baby Cobra and constantly binge-watch Fresh Off the Boat, you’ll love this rom-com. Director Nahnatchka Khan and actors Randall Park and Ali Wong come together for this tale of two childhood sweethearts who grow apart only to reconnect 15 years later.

13

Cue the Christmas-themed montage.
