There is something really cathartic about a good, sad film.

Any recommendations?

Beaches, for sure

Brooklyn, a lovely film with some very sad parts.

Hachi blush heartbreaking dog filmwith Richard Gere. I watched it when 2 weeks overdue in a bid to get the hormones flowing, went into labour the next morning grin

Stepmom or One Day.

Although One Day I watched when first pregnant and it was probably the hormones that made me cry all night. DH was like hmmandconfused When I just couldn't stop sobbing and suggested I take a test the next day.

A Very Long Engagement with Audrey Tautou. I'm still sobbing 10 years later.

I never cry at films. Ever. I went to the cinema on my own one day to see About Time. Admittedly I had PMT but I sobbed all the way through the end. It was so loud and embarrassing.

I put it down to PMT though so when it came out on DVD I rented it to watch with DH. I cried even more that time. I think it is meant to be a comedy though.

I cried from beginning to end of Never Let Me Go, properly bawled my eyes out, but I had read the book already so I knew what was going to happen.

Truly madly deeply. I tend to start crying along with Julia around 5 minutes in.
And cinema paradiso. Final scene has me sobbing like a loon.
Mind you, it could just be me. i can't even listen to Abba's 'slipping through my fingers' without sniffling.

The Green Mile. Proper sobbed at that.
Stepmom. Another sob-inducing film for me.

I always cry watching Greyfriars Bobby. The dog doesn't die and I don't, or probably never will, have a dog. I cried reading the book too.

I second About Time. I pop that on if I need to ugly cry. Or the Best of Me was the last one I watched.

DH was away the other weekend and I'd had a shitty week at work so needed some cathartic film crying. I watched Brooklyn on the Friday night then Suffragette on the Saturday.

Juno. I didn't think it would be my cup of tea but I've seen it a few times now and always blub at the end. That and stick man.

The part where he gets he messages from his children... I'm welling up thinking about it!
