The Valentine’s Day Romantic Movie Survey
Tell us your favorite romantic movie and help Women’s Voices raise up to $25,000 for BabyHeart, the International Children’s Heart Foundation, which treats children in developing countries born with heart disease.
Is it Now, Voyager, with its poignant renunciation scene, featuring Bette Davis uttering the best closing line in all moviedom?
Is it Sleepless in Seattle (or An Affair to Remember), with its easy-to-go-awry assignation at the top of the Empire State Building?
Is it, perhaps, the enduring, inarticulate affection between Rocky the Prizefighter and Adrian the Pet Shop Girl that softens you up?
Or might it be an unlikely newbie—say, Her?
On Saturday, February 15, Women’s Voices for Change will post the results of our new V-Day Survey, in which our readers collectively choose the best romantic movie of all time. Voting closes at midnight on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
There’s substance to this story. An anonymous Women’s Voices donor has offered to contribute $5 for every entry, up to a limit of $25,000. The proceeds will go to BabyHeart, the International Children’s Heart Foundation, which treats children in developing nations who are born with heart disease. The foundation provides direct care to as many children as possible in the short term; sends medications, surgical supplies, and diagnostic equipment to medical facilities in developing countries; and trains surgeons and medical staff so they ultimately can provide care for their own people.
How to Vote
No doubt you have several sentimental favorites. You get only one vote, though, and can nominate only one film—the one you crown as the best.
We’ll give you a byline for your mini-review. Simply name your movie and tell us why it’s so sterling in three sentences or less. The form below makes the voting easy. (Choosing “only one” is the hard part.) Each of us at Women’s Voices has her own favorite. We’ll be voting too.
