Older woman-younger man relationship movies are a rarity everywhere. One wonders why? We already know that “way too older men-younger women” romance in movies is common. With that said, here is the list of best older woman-younger man relationship movies. Some might call these cougar movies or the ones bordering paedophilia, but frankly, there is so much more to them than being reduced to these mere terms. Top 10 Older Woman ♥ Younger Man Relationship Movies and films
Number 10-The Lifeguard: To sum it up, ‘The Lifeguard’ is the tale of a disillusioned woman who has seemingly lost it all in her career and started working at a menial job. The narrative of Leigh, the said journalist turned lifeguard, takes a sharp turn when she falls in love with much younger teenager boy Little Jason, who is the son of the maintenance man. What starts as an acquaintance gets blown up into a full-fledged affair with frequent indulgences in encounters.
Arguably one of the biggest flicks of Diane Lane’s career, which became infamous for the nudity and Boldness(with a younger man), ‘Unfaithful’ as the name suggests, is the story of a married woman with a young bookseller, an affliction which soon gets blown out of proportions. A tale of nascent love transforming into uncontrollable, the story begins with Edward and Connie, who, along with their eight-year-old son Charlie are leading an idyllic life in NYC. Connie bumps into a handsome young lad Paul, who seemingly sweeps her off with his charm.
Number 8-I Am Love:
An Italian film at the outset, ‘I Am Love’ revolves around the narrative of the Recchi family, a textile manufacturing giant based out in Milan. Emma is the wife of Tancredi Recchi, the wealthy magnate who is to inherit his paternal wealth from his predecessors. Emma stumbles upon Antonio, a chef who is the best friend of Eduardo, Emma’s son. Soon, Emma finds her ways to meet Antonio while they increasingly slip away into an intimate, physical relationship.
Number 7-The Reader :
‘The Reader’ tells the story of a boy Michael who develops a relationship with an older woman Hanna in the backdrop of impending trials seeking answers on the concentration camps. They first meet when the boy feels sick while traveling in a tram and later meet up in her apartment where she seduces him and they make love. They begin to see each other more frequently in her apartment and she insists he reads literary works he’s studying after they make love every time. However, her past comes back to haunt her and this wrecks their relationship, leaving a lasting impact on the two.
Number 6-Y Tu Mama También:
From director Alfonso Cuarón, this film greatly depicts the desires and discoveries of the typical teenage youth, through a film that offers more than what it shows at first glance. Julio and Tenoch are two friends living in Mexico who’s girlfriends are leaving for a holiday overseas. After meeting the wife of a cousin of Tenoch, they convince her to join them on a road trip through the country after she discovers about her husband’s infidelity. On this voyage, and friendship will be key elements which will endure new discoveries, changes and self-reflection.
Number 5-All Things Fair: A Swedish film set in the era of WWII, ‘All Things Fair’ is also the last film by Bo Widerberg and is set in the south of Sweden, where a story of controversial love and seductive desires takes place between a female teacher and her student. Stig is a 15-year-old student who is exploring his desire when he deeply falls under the charm of his teacher Viola’s attractive maturity. Viola, being more than twice of his age, enjoys his youth as an alleviation of her alcoholic husband and they soon start a physical relationship.
Number 4-A Short Film About Love:
‘A Short Film About Love’ is a film that has grown on me tremendously with time. The way Kieslowski manages to portray the sheer tenderness of love here is simply beyond words. The film explores the relationship between a teenage boy and an older promiscuous woman whom he spies on from his window. She does not believe in love and is way beyond the naivety of a teenager who thinks he’s in love but is only infatuated with her. She dismisses his feelings but later begins to see his love. The ‘Dekalog’ version of the film has a slightly better ending, in my opinion with the boy realizing that it was not the love that was between them but more of mere fantasy. This was far more powerful and tragic than the more fairy tail-ish ending of the movie. Additionally, it remains one of the greatest romantic films ever made.
