  3. 3. 500 Days of Summer 

    This movie is on Hulu and Amazon Prime! I recently watched this movie over break, and I don’t know how I had gone so long without seeing it! This movie follows a hopeless romantic who falls for a girl who is anything but that. It is about finding love and figuring out where you went wrong in a relationship. In doing so, the main characters find their true passions.
