Most movies introduce some kind of couple on screen in order to capture the viewer’s attention. Some couples are romantically involved, others are just friends or struggling somewhere in between. Yet there are couples that are none of that, representing some really weird relationships, like that of agent Clarice and the infamous Hannibal Lecter. Here’s a list of unusual couples that you will either love or hate. It’s impossible to stay indifferent when you see them on screen!
Benjamin and Daisy – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
Benjamin and Daisy are among the most unconventional couples that have ever existed. How would you feel dating a guy that’s getting constantly younger? It may be fun for a while, but it’s the same as with getting old – all things will end one way or another. Their story is heartbreaking and their relationship is truly sweet and touching.
Lolita & Humbert Humbert – Lolita (1997)
Love it or hate it, but the romance between Lolita & Humbert Humbert is real. It may be ominous, deviant, wrong on so many levels, but real at the same time. It’s a story of weird love, seduction and manipulation based on Nabokov’s novel ‘Lolita’. The much older Humbert Humbert gets obsessed with the 12-year-old Lolita who reminds him of his long lost childhood love.
