Get in the mood: Cleopatra named top Valentine’s Day movie

Elizabeth Taylor

‘Cleopatra’ has been named as the top movie to get couples in the mood for Valentine’s Day (14.02.15) this year.

Empire Cinemas says the iconic movie, starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, and based on the play ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ by William Shakespeare, is the best example of true love on the silver screen.

The company explained: “Trust Shakespeare to set the bar high. Real life lovers Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton set the screen alight with their sumptuous version of Cleopatra, while their trysts around Italy set the paparazzi on fire.”

The film shared Empire’s top spot with the 1996 film ‘Romeo + Juliet’, which features Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the leading roles.
