Mandatory Staff Picks: The Best Movies About Unrequited Love

Hollywood loves a good unrequited love story, and the movies that tackle this topic do so with uncanny accuracy. While you’re waiting for time to erase the pain inflicted by the one who got away, distract yourself with these movies and thank Cupid you didn’t get it as bad as these characters did.
