Top 10: Films that have made me cry
Yesterday I felt a little teary after Tom told me the jazz pianist Dave Brubeck had passed away. When I listened to this song (familiar to all, no doubt) I suddenly felt all emotional. Ahem. Sometimes things just get you out of the blue. Anyway, I thought I'd make a list of films that have made me cry, some for sad reasons, some for happy. Are there any I've missed?
1. Life is Beautiful
If you've seen it you'll know why. Probably the film that made me weep the most!
2. It's a Wonderful Life
Sad tears, happy tears.. watching this film around Christmas is becoming a great yearly tradition.
So sad when he's separated from his mother.
4. The Graduate
I know, it's a comedy. But the bit at the end where they're all happy on the bus together.. ahh.
The opening scene. Last time I watched it I had to leave the room! Anything about old folks feeling lonely inevitably makes me a bit teary.
6. My Girl
Still makes me well up.. Thomas Jay needs his glasses!
7. Little Women
The scene at Christmas near the beginning. Sniff.
8. The Land Before Time
Orphan dinosaurs are in it together!
9. Lilya 4 Ever
A pretty sombre film about a girl from Estonia called Lilja who dreams of a better life with her only friend, a boy called Volodya.
Those evil hunters.
And some films that didn't make me cry...
I was told that this would definitely make me cry but for some reason I couldn't sympathise that much with the characters.
Marley and Me
Mainly as I fell asleep a couple of hours into it and missed the sad part. Oops! May have to watch it again..
(Also of note, a slightly sexist list of films that make men cry. Hmm..)
