  I am looking for some good tear-jerking movies that can really touch your heart. I need a good cry every once in a while and I'm drawing a blank for new titles.

 The saddest movies I can think of (in no particular order) are:

~Armageddon
~P.S., I love you
~The Notebook
~A Walk to Remember
~Beaches
~Brian's Song
~My Sister's Keeper
~The Green Mile
~My Girl
~Steele Magnolias
~50/50
~Message in a bottle
~The Last Song
~The Pursuit of Happiness
~City Of Angles  

 Does anyone have any suggestions? If so, please also provide a brief descrition on the movie. (Don't give the whole story away.) 

Thanks! (Please bump for me!)

The first one is called "Nothing Is Strange With You". The second is called "The Road Out of Hell."

Quoting PEEPkiller:

there are two actually. One focuses on the trial of the killer. The other is the true account of the killer's nephew, Sanford. He is the kid in the movie that confessed to what happened to all the little boys. His story is truly a nightmare, and I dare say he suffered more than any of the kids that man actully murdered.

Yes...and the movie version of the story isn't even the whole story. They left a lot of things out.

Changeling and Atonement always make me lose it.


Did it absolutely make your jaw drop at what they were trying to do to Angelina Jolie's character, in the Changeling?



Is there a book? I shall have to look for it. "Atonement" didn't make me cry as much as angry. I thought it was reprehensible to blame a child for misunderstanding what she was seeing.



Do you know the titles or authors of the books? I am looking but not finding info on books.

You didn't list "Bridges of Madison County."

"Gone With the Wind"

Another one is very old, probably only the older people may remember, "Madame X." That movie leaves me sad for days and thinking about it for weeks later, especially since I had my little boy. It's an old black and white movie. Find it if you can.

There it is-- Madame X. I answered before I saw this. I just looked it up, and it's from the year 1937. I love the old movies because of the simplicity in the filming. Without all the technology tricks, success for those old movies depended on the writers' and actors' talent. There is a lack of talent like that nowadays. Success today = sex and violence and special effects.

Quoting AMCSM:

Always.... Love it. Madame X... It is old but I don't just cry I take a sudafed and sob like a baby.

I love "My Sister's Keeper." I love any movie with Kathy Bates. She is really good. I love the part where she dances up and down the steps with that little neighbor boy singing "Duke of Earl."

Beaches, and MySisters Keeper

 I actually found the 1966 Lana Turner version on DVD....This is the version I love. I can watch the last 15 min and be a mess for the rest of the day.

 Oh, I didn't know there was a 1966 version. Now I'll have to check to see if that's the one I saw...
