Yes, we’re going to talk about BWWM movies again. We’ve already done a blog post on the best BWWM movies of all time, so we’re going to look at something different.
This time, we’re delving into what we like about our favorite movies featuring BWWM couples. At the end, we’re going to ask for your opinion and invite you to leave a comment.
For now, let’s dig into this topic.
Common Elements of our Favorite BWWM Movies
First up, we’re going to list some of the common themes and elements in our favorite movies with BWWM couples.
- Genuine Characters – One of the most vital elements to a great BWWM movie is having characters we can care about. Too often, movies are rushed and the secondary characters are two-dimensional. Sometimes the main characters are not fleshed out.
- Good Plot – Also important is a realistic plot (without HOLES) that keeps our attention. This is where movies like The Loving Story are so fascinating. (Note: There’s a new fictional account of the Loving story coming out in 2016. We’re so excited!)
- Happy Ending – No, not all movies require a happy ending, but when it comes to our favorite BWWM movies, they tend to be romantic and have an HEA (Happily Ever After) or HFN (Happy for Now) ending. People love to feel happy.
- The Racial Issue – Some movies, like Corrina, Corrina, touch on racial issues, but this isn’t a necessity in our opinion. A good BWWM film can simply be a good action movie or love story. Not every movie needs to have racial tension!
The list above isn’t complete, but we think it’s a good starting point for a discussion about movies with BWWM characters in a lead or supporting role. Next up, we want to hear from you.
