Movies That make Me Cry...Inspired by Andrew at "Encore's World of Film.."
I follow some interesting and wonderful blogs that I am happy to showcase here. One that captured my attention in a big way was a 30-day Movie Meme offered by Andrew at Encore's World of Film and Television.
Topic #6 is Movies That Always Make You Cry.
As someone who gives himself freely and unashamedly to my emotions watching movies, this post is irresistable..
So before I plunge in to other topics that are crying out for me to discuss, I will take a little side trip of the heart, and copy my own list of tear-jerkers, which also appears in the Comment (Walking in the Park) section of Andrew's post.
I liked Andrew's choices, especially THE HOURS, which has special resonance.
Lots of movies make me cry. The biggest tear-wringers are these:
THE YEARLING (1946)..tearing up now just thinking about it! A boy loses his pet fawn, and childhood ends.
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) Two people in love and a nameless cat in the rain, and "Moon River"...
