I have a number of favorite love stories — a few being Forrest and Jenny, Noah and Allie, Joker and Harley Quinn. While most people don’t immediately associate WALL-E as being a classic romantic film, I always adored and admired the love story between WALL-E and Eve. Here we have a friendship turned relationship that plays out through mutual acts of kindness, simple gestures, and self-sacrifice — where both robots take turns being rescued and being the rescuer. There was nothing that could stop WALL-E from being with Eve — not hundreds of billions of miles of space travel, evil robots, or a captain who lost all concept of what life on Earth was like. WALL-E and Eve show us that despite all adversity, love will always come through in the end.
And in my favorite scene in the movie, after sharing an electrifying kiss, WALL-E and Eve dance in zero gravity, spinning around each other in a space-dance that leaves twinkling trails of stardust in their wake.
