In the spirit of Valentine’s, we’ve compiled a list of modern breakup films to make you feel less upset if you’ve been dumped (or did the dumping). These films (and one series) will justify anyone’s state of singleness. Be glad you don’t have a monster mother in law (Monster-in-Law), a psycho wife (Gone Girl), or an incestuous gold digger for a husband (Crimson Peak).
