Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh (Dead Again, 1991)
#i hesitate to assign them IRL OTP status because of how patently happy they both are with other people BUT STILL #BUT STILL #BUT. STILL. #emma thompson #this was a thing that existed #just want to make that point #that delicious delightful point
AND IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL THING WHILE IT LASTED OKAY.
IT’S SUCH A SHAME IT DIDNT
My earliest fandom. Ken and Em. Much Ado About Nothing forever!
They are one gorgeously sexy couple.
BENEDICK: A miracle! here’s our own hands against our hearts. Come, I will have thee; but, by this light, I take thee for pity.
BEATRICE: I would not deny you; but, by this good day, I yield upon great persuasion; and partly to save your life, for I was told you were in a consumption.
BENEDICK: Peace! I will stop your mouth.

Not to mention gorgeously tanned women constantly falling out of their loose cotton dresses, sun-drenched Tuscan scenery, and Branagh and Thompson being snarky and wonderful.
Kay Eiffel: As Harold took a bite of Bavarian sugar cookie, he finally felt as if everything was going to be ok. Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren’t any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange, but I also know that it just so happens to be true. And, so it was, a wristwatch saved Harold Crick.

They really are disgustingly cute.
Less so in black and white because you can’t see their perfect tans and sun-bleached hair.
