The second: You’re resigned to spending the night alone, wallowing in self-pity, because that’s what single people are supposed to do on V-Day, right? Well, we’re here to tell you no. It doesn’t have to be that way. Instead of wondering why no one cho-cho-chose you, why not take this opportunity to lose yourself in the magic of the moving image! After all, movies were made for us to escape whatever dreariness we’re dealing with in the real world, and there’s nothing more dreary than being nose deep in a tub of ice cream on Valentine’s Day.
