'High Fidelity' (2000)

Hopeless romantics, here's some advice from the film adaptation of Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity": A relationship is not over until someone is crying in the rain. John Cusack's Rob Gordon, who's on a quest to win back Laura (Iben Hjejle), reminisces about a night in which he made a right spectacle of himself in front of an ex. Reflecting on his time with Catherine Zeta-Jones' Charlie Nicholson, Rob recalls standing outside Charlie's fancy Chicago loft one evening in the middle of a rainstorm until Charlie's new boyfriend ushers her from the window. So here's another piece of advice from "High Fidelity": Do not move on until you have actually seen your object of desire with someone else. It makes the whole thing hit home more.
