What movies should I watch to learn what healthy intimate relationships look like?

I recently ended another relationship due to finding myself in the position of caretaker and co-dependent. Now while I rest and recover...I research! What are some good movies that portray both people in a partnership from a nuanced, compassionate perspective? For instance, I watched "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" again and really enjoyed it. I watched "Closer" and thought it was ridiculous. I'm not looking for the full-on "romance as religious quest" trope, nor the Woody Allen/Phillip Roth brand of smarmy neuroticism.
I also really like small-town settings and good soundtracks.
