If you love movies, and you love romance, the DVD world has lots of new releases you can sample, depending on the kind of romantic you are.
If you are a traditionalist, there is the "Keepsake Edition" of the BBC's 5 1/2-hour 1995 version of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle are well-cast, and the set features an hour of new bonus features.
If you like romance that's more off-center, Criterion has come up with a dual-format edition of Francois Truffaut's New Wave classic "Jules and Jim," starring Jeanne Moreau as a woman potent enough to intoxicate two men at the same time.
If you like ill-fated romance, there’s "Lady From Shanghai" written by and starring Orson Welles and co-starring his then-wife, the glamorous Rita Hayworth. The closing shoot-out in a fun-house hall of mirrors is justly famous.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
