4. Love, Rosie

This cute romantic comedy-drama gives us ALL THE FEELS.

The sweet, heart-warming movie focusses on the relationship between two best friends; Alex Stewart (Sam Claflin) and Rosie Garratt (Lily Collins). The two have been inseparable since childhood.

After a drunk kiss at Rosie’s 18th birthday party, the pair soon realise that there might be more to their friendship…

But trust us, this movie is definitely NOT that simple. The moments of sexual tension kill us and be prepared to be hella frustrated at these two loved-up dummies.

How we can ever forget Sam Claflin’s captivating performance as the flirty Finnick Odair; the winner of the 65th Hunger Games who was reaped into the Third Quarter Quell. Sam Claflin lifts the character right off the pages.

Finnick went on to form an alliance with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and fought with them in the Mockingjay rebellion.

Sam Claflin stole and broke our hearts as the tetraplegic Will Traynor, who was paralysed after being hit by a speeding motorcyle.

The film adaptation, based on the Jojo Moyes novel of the same name, sees Louisa Clark (Games of Thrones star Emilia Clarke) hired as a companion for Will Traynor at the request of his parents, who are now caring for him since his accident.

The depressed Will, distraught by his immobility, at first seeks to make Louisa Clark’s life as difficult as possible. However, as time goes on, they begin to warm to one another and develop feelings.

Things take a tragic turn when it is revealed that Will plans to go to Switzerland to end his life.

Upon discovering this, Louisa desperately tries to find ways to change his mind and make him fall in love with life again.
