Movie Critique 2016 – 02/14/2016: An Affair to Remember

Continuing with the critiques I started in 2015, here is the next in series – a movie review.
Prologue: Go here.

Stars: 5 / 5
My Recommendation: A perfect Valentine's Day gift for that one love in your life. Or simply for that lazy day when you want to just cuddle up and watch something magical and beautiful at the same time.

An Affair to Remember is a 1957 American classic starring Cary Grant as Nicolò (Nickie) Ferrante and Deborah Kerr as Terry McKay. It was a remake of the 1939 hit film Love Affair starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer. Incidentally both movies have been written and directed by Leo McCarey. And both movies are the first and original remake to win an Oscar nomination for Best Song.

Although An Affair to Remember was nominated for four Oscars ( Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Original Song and Best Original Score) but walked away with none. An apt movie for my post marking the Valentine's Day in my review blog for this year.

PS: I have yet to watch the 1939 original Love Affair that started all this obsession, love and emotion towards this movie.
