    How about The Green Mile?

    Too Kill A Mockingbird.

    Places in the Heart

    Yes, The Joy Luck Club. I just saw it for the first time and I cried several times, especially when the woman lets go of the baby in the bath and it drowns.

    Then there is The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood. When the mother is beating her kids with a belt in the rain. That always reminds me of my own mother beating us, totally losing self control. It hits home so hard that I burst into tears just like I am nine years old again.

    Field of Dreams

    ET - no one undertands why I cry at this movie but I saw it the day after I got Dfed. I think I was just emotionally raw.

    Cry Freedom

    I broke down at the end when they listed all the names of those who fought apartheid and were killed for it

    September '77

    Port Elizabeth weather fine

    It was business as usual

    In police room 619

    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko

    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko

    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja

    -The man is dead

    I can only dream in red

    The outside world is black and white

    With only one colour dead

    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko

    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko

    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja

    -The man is dead

    You can blow out a candle

    But you can't blow out a fire

    Once the flames begin to catch

    The wind will blow it higher

    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko

    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja

    -The man is dead

    Good Will Hunting always makes me cry when Robin Williams tells him what happened to him is not his fault...sniff sniff.

    I watched Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants this weekend and cried a lot.

    Steel Magnolias...that's a box of kleenex right there!

    I also recently watched Beyond Borders with Angelina Jolie and cried a bunch...

    American History X.

    Speaks volumes about race relations in the United States, and the true cause / origins of racism.

    Shawshank Redemption

  • Champion

    LIfe is Beautiful

  • lonelysheep

    House of Sand & Fog (talk about depressing!)


    Steel Magnolias

    Life is Beautiful

    Pretty Woman (when he comes to pick her up in the limo)

    Any movie that shows something bad happening to kids, and I'm done.....I'm bawling.
