It may be a time to celebrate love on Monday, but many will use February 14 to mark Singles Awareness Day. While the rest of the world toasts love and romance with fine dinners and fine wines, those flying solo this year can plan the ultimate movie night. So, when all you see on screen is romantic comedies, here are some Sundance movie recommendations to change the pace.

These include stories of brokenhearted and brokenhearted – relationships based on blackmail, betrayal, and heartbreaking awakenings. Put on your favorite casual attire (and maybe keep wine and chocolate on your side) and browse this heartbreaking list of premieres at previous Sundance Film Festivals.
