A love story like no other is worse when the film characters are star-crossed lovers. When the love is that strong and pure, you’ll do anything to even enjoy one night with them. The worst is having to go back to your life and pretend like it never happened. 

The forbidden affair that Robert and Francesca (Meryl Streep) followed through on is just an example of how Robert Kincaid is one attractive film character. Because he knows that sometimes love means risking it all.

“I don’t want to need you, ’cause I can’t have you.”
