This week's picks from Wandering Through The Shelves is the kind of love that has to be kept secret. There's plenty of those, most of them tragic. I tried to take at least 2 of my picks in a different direction. Here's what I came up with.
1) Brokeback Mountain - This is always the first thing I think of when I hear "forbidden love." This movie is perfect.
2) The Girl Next Door - A teenager falling in love with his ex porn star neighbor is certainly forbidden. I'm sure there's plenty in this movie that hasn't aged well but it was a lot of fun.
3) Lars and the Real Girl - This forbidden love is about a man falling in love with his sex doll. This was a lovely little film and I jumped for joy when it got an Original Screenplay Oscar nomination.
