A good movie is capable of provoking all types of emotions in the audience, so take a minute before you decide to watch any of these seven movies that will make you cry. From heart-wrenching love stories, to humanitarian dramas, the films on this list will push your emotional resilience to the limit. Unless you are made of stone, you’ll most likely need a handkerchief by the end of these films.
Most people expect to be entertained when it comes to cinema and for that we recently published an article about the 10 highest rated movies of 2014. And although the movies on this list will undoubtedly help you kill a few hours, I don’t recommend you watch them before going to work or on a date. Why? Because those tears will drop quicker than you can anticipate them.
One of my college teachers once told me that if you can make a person cry with your story, then you’ve written a great script and created a movie that will stand the test of time. So, let’s see what these blockbusters did right to make it on the list of seven movies that will make you cry.
7. The Notebook
Romantic tales have a way of touching us emotionally and generating empathy in our hearts. While some will call this Nicholas Sparks classic cheesy, I have yet to meet someone who hasn’t cried at the end of the film. The Notebook tells the story of Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams), two teenagers that fall deeply in love and have to overcome several separations before they are reunited in their bliss. I won’t spoil the saddest moment, but I will say it’s a definite climax point that will have you drenched in a matter of seconds.
One of the most acclaimed love stories in movie history lands at number seven. Where can the list of movies that will make you cry go from here? Head to the next page to find out. *sniff*
