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


Mr. Turner

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Mike Leigh delivers a naturalistic, stunningly shot biopic about the working life of J.M.W. Turner. Timothy Spall plays the legendary painter with brave and captivating restraint.


The Interview

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

In the unlikely event that this subversive Seth Rogen comedy proves to be Sony’s downfall, at least they'll go out with a bang—the jokes are wonderfully lowbrow.


Winter Sleep

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

This year’s winner of the Palme d’Or is a nearly four-hour drama about a curmudgeon who lives in Turkey's remote mountains. Despite that, it’s pretty great.
