So I'm sitting here watching Seven Pounds (Will Smith)
I've seen this film loads of times, but it never fails to make me cry. Like proper ugly cry, tears streaming, everything.
This is the only film that does this to me. I think it's so underrated.

What movies do this to other people??

The English patient always gets me. It’s so melodramatic but I don’t care, absolutely love it!

Haven't sobbed at a film since I was eight and Bambi's mum died.

Independence Day, when the alcoholic pilot is proved right, sacrifices his life to safe the world and regains the respect of his sons, makes me blub like a baby. I’m welling up now just thinking about it.

The Light Between Oceans was really sad for me. I haven't read the book and I don't want to now!

Philadelphia - first saw it in my late teens when I was very hard nosed and cynical and blubbed like a baby at the end.

Monsters Ball - not so much sad as downright depressing. Saw it at the cinema and felt so drained and miserable afterwards, wish I hadn't bothered!

In America.
Schindler's list.

'Beaches' it's an old film from the 80's but it was on TV recently and even though I knew what was going to happen I balled my eyes out. And I kept crying after the film finished ffs. It's happy and funny throughout and then the end... So, so heartbreaking.

What is it about Marley and Me? I don't especially like dogs but I cry every time! Also Beaches when in my teens was my go to film when I needed a good cry. Haven't watched it in years.

Lion, could not speak by the end of it!

Grave of the Fireflies - a Studio Ghibli anime. An IMDB reviewer called it “The best movie you’ll never want to see again”. Pretty accurate 😞

Walk to remember.

The Impossible always has me in a mess and The Boy in the Stripes Pyjamas could only watch that once

Lion. I watched it on a plane, started sobbing a few minutes in and didn't stop. Just sobbed and sobbed. True story, too. It's a beautiful film. I recommend it.
