The wives club
Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn create the First Wives Club to get back at their lousy cheating ex-husbands. And the movie is very good. With the actors performance, this movie has everything you need for those deep Insta captions for post-breakup posts and, honestly, it's a needed reminder that relationships can be messy at every age.
John Tucker Must Die
of a serial cheater who hunt his ass down and ruin his life. It's so satisfying. It’s a bit sad though that the movie has a stereotypical happy ending for the dude but that’s Hollywood for you!!! If you wanted to turn this off about 20 minutes before the end, I would not begrudge you.

The Souvenir is an exquisite portrait of the doomed relationship between naive Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne) and the mysterious Anthony (Tom Burke), acknowledging both how difficult it can be to disentangle from a toxic relationship, and the bruises it can leave behind.
(500) Days of Summer
Let Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) serve as a warning against looking back at past relationships with rose-colored glasses. It's only when he starts to see Summer (Zooey Deschanel) with clearer eyes that he's able to understand what went wrong, and move on to the next stage of his life.
Anyone who's tried to remedy a broken heart with petty confrontations and ill-advised hookups will recognize themselves in Shirin (Desiree Akhavan, who also wrote and directed) and her halfhearted attempts to get her life back together after she's dump
