Movie-Style Rain

Every hopeless romantic loves rain; cinema’s first, last and in-between kisses, under a drizzle turned downpour, are scenes destined for couched-cuddled makeouts. Pair that with an indie film-rock album duo and you’ve got every semi-strange, hopeless romantic in the room completely melted by love and great writing.

Garden State (2004) still holds one of the best deluged scenes and shares one of the best soundtracks ever made, I think —- once Zach Braff & Natalie Portman mixed themselves with romanticized melancholy humor, I died and lived in love, over and over and over again.

The scene is as famously fantastic as its paired song by Simon & Garfunkel. The soundtrack is as intricately deep as the scene’s first kiss, and I will always go head-over-heels.
