I like a good movie cry. They are tragic, and cleansing, and usually involve fictional characters. Last week my roommate and I saw The Monuments Men and at one point I left out an audible sob - it's cool, the theater wasn't too packed. That got me thinking that I should post my list of "go to" sob fest movies in case anyone who reads this blog needs a good cry.
I only chose movies that I would watch over and over again. They touched my heart for a variety of reasons but normally the tears fall because someone lovely and worthy of life ends up dying. Or movies about oppression - sheesh, those get me every time!
So next time you need that deep, soul wrenching cry, please turn to my list, grab the tissues, and cry like no one is watching!
Million Dollar Baby
The Green Mile
Fried Green Tomatoes
The Shawshank Redemption
Dead Poets Society
Romeo and Juliet
Boy in the Striped Pajamas
(be careful with these, they involve real people)
