So there is a thread about TV characters and it got me thinking. So AIBU to ask what movie really makes you cry?
The Green Mile. The moment when Tom Hanks says "We love you. Can you feel that?"

Why is this AIBU?

Well I read the title and came on to write The Green Mile, but you beat me too it.

I absolutely sob my heart out at that film. If I'm flicking through the channels and it's on, I always have to watch it, even though I know I'm going to bawl.

Definitely The Green Mile. And Arrival with Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner sad

Honky-tonk man
It's a years old Clint Eastwood film. He has tb abd is dying but takes his nephew with him on a last tour to Nashville and every time he sang honky-tonk man I bawled my eyes out.

Where the women go, it was a crappy ch5 afternoon film on when I was a student and that made me bawl my eyes out. I still remember what it was called. It was about these beaten and down trodden women in rural America and they started up some women's club in a bar during the day while their husbands were at work and all became friends and each others support network.

The song at the beginning of the original prisoner cell block h used to make me cry too.

Odd, odd films grin

Shawshank Redemption - the last 20 mins. I've seen it so many times now that I start crying before I get to it because I know what's coming.

The fault in our stars, I was full on ugly crying the first time I watched that. DH thought I'd lost the plot blush

Totally agree with two already posted.
Bridges of Madison County (that's my worst), it's so beautifully done and so so sad and lovely at the same time. Unrequited love.

I don't mean to laugh at anyone else's choices but ET and Lassie??? It's a good job we're all different!

Brokeback Mountain is a tear jerker, Love Story is excrutiatingly sad, an oldie but goodie. I found 'Philadelphia' really sad too and 'Saving Private Ryan', but I love Tom Hanks and he's in both of those.

The Impossible ... gets me every single time. Almost the whole film as well.
Marley and me.
Harry Potter and the half blood prince and Harry Potter and the deathly hallows part 1 and 2

Oh my gosh there are loads but these are the ones that spring to mind.

Are you Fucking joking? This simply means you are made of steel.
