This week's Valentine's Day theme is May-December romances, ie: relationships with a big age gap. I think these are fine between adults that at least have some life experience, but it's hard for me to ever get behind say, a teenager hooking up with someone middle aged. I just can't. So here are three good movies that had May-December romances that were 100% wrong.
1) Notes on a Scandal
A teacher hooking up with her teenage student? Then another teacher obsessing and black mailing her over it? Great movie, beautifully acted, relationship is gross.
Troubled teen starts robbing houses and subsquently hooks up with an older man whom he tried to rob? Paul Dano is amazing, lots of depth for a small film, relationship is gross.
3) Down in the Valley
Rebellious teen hooks up with a man who thinks he's a cowboy? Great acting, (Yaaasss Evan Rachel Wood) very accurate portrayal of teen rebellion, relationship is gross.
