In the mood for love this springtime? We've rounded up some of the season's sexiest and most romantic films, from the buzzed-about Nymphomaniac: Volume I to star-studded rom-com The Other Woman. Check out our picks and grab a seat at one of New York’s best movie theaters for some saucy springtime action.

Nymphomaniac: Volume I

Don’t even pretend you’re not interested in Lars von Trier’s latest—a two-part epic about voracious sexual addiction, the “silent duck” (look it up), effeminate cake forks and all sorts of other crazy bedroom practices. The first chapter, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman and the boldly exposed Stacy Martin, is more playful than the second half.

Under the Skin

We went without seeing Scarlett Johansson in Her; it’s good to have her back in the flesh in the spooky, stirring latest from director Jonathan Glazer (Birth, Sexy Beast), in which ScarJo plays an extraterrestrial who lures men to their doom while wrestling with her own identity crisis. This premise sounds like it belongs back in the Man Who Fell to Earth ’70s—we’re glad Hollywood is still up for the bizarre.

Only Lovers Left Alive

Tired of whiny teenage vampires? (Immortality is wasted on the young.) It’s finally time for some truly killer bloodsuckers, as embodied by the effortlessly cool Tilda Swinton and The Avengers’ Tom Hiddleston, as (after)life partners whose lust for each other is literally eternal. Best of all: Director-slash-downtown-legend Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers) returns to idiosyncratic form.

The Other Woman

After watching Cameron Diaz squirm on a car windshield in The Counselor, we know she’s fully capable of going ape on an unfaithful boyfriend (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)—particularly once her character bonds with a neurotic force of nature in the form of Leslie Mann (This Is 40). Model Kate Upton rounds out the trio, proving that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned—let alone three of them.

The best films now showing


The Conformist

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Bernardo Bertolucci's achingly perfect bold stroke predicted the entire inward sweep of the 1970s.


Love Is Strange

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Playing a longtime New York couple suddenly without a home, Alfred Molina and John Lithgow commit to one of the year’s best dramas, a story of ill-fated unraveling.


To Be Takei

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

You know him as Star Trek’s Sulu—and one of Facebook’s finest practical jokers. But George Takei has an incredible life story, always toward a higher state of selfhood.
