Everyone has seen movies about dating. But they may not have considered how much dating has been shaped by the movies. Drawing on Moira Weigel's new history, Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), this series explores the long affair between singles looking for real life romance and the stories that they watched on screen, from cautionary silent dramas about the perils of unsupervised courtship to iconic rom coms to films about feminist and gay liberation. While the series charts a century that has given us new and previously unimaginable romantic freedoms, the trials and travails of these romantic leads prove what any single on the market already knows: dating is work.
