56. City of Angels (1998)

I know I've probably watched this film a dozen times already, but I still get this warm and fuzzy feeling when seeing Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage on screen together.

Romantic Plot: Angel Seth (Cage) frequently comes to Earth, spending a lot of time hovering invisibly over L.A. -- the actual city of angels. He listens to people's wishes, dreams, and thoughts, watches how they live, and guides them into the afterlife when it's their time to pass over. Heart surgeon Maggie (Ryan) particularly piques his interest -- so much so that he is ultimately ready to forfeit his wings to live as a mortal man and be with her. He discovers that human happiness is sublime ... but not guaranteed.
Main Cast: Meg Ryan, Nicholas Cage, Colm Feore, and Dennis Franz.
Romantic Mood: Inspiring, heartbreaking.
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 6.3 out of 10.
