    There have been many but I had a total melt down at the end of Sophie's Choice. I hadn't cried in years before I saw that movie in in 1982. I was still very much a JW at the time. I have no idea where the pain and sorrow came from, maybe it was the fact there are things people have gone through that we have defied all reason logic. Maybe it was the music maybe it was the hopelessness..... there was no way out.

    My Mom had just died of cancer at 57 when the movie "Steel Magnolias" came out. I remember loosing it during the graveside scene where Sally Field's character who had been stoic up to that point, breaks down and looses her composure. Fortunately the scene ended perfectly with some much needed laughter.

    The Elephant Man (1980) by David Lynch. It's a great film with a number of emotional scenes.

    There's another scene where Dr Treves first sees John Merrick and is stunned by the latter's deformity, so that as the camera zooms in, we see a small tear on Treves' left eye that runs down his cheek. Apparently, Anthony Hopkins could cry on cue. That's another memorable moment, one of many.

    The final scene in An American Werewolf In London (1981) is pretty emotional, too. Jenny Agutter played it straight and did very well.
