Top Ten Tear-Jerkers

 

This week, I invited a group of friends out for the evening. And everyone left in tears. 

 

Sound like a disaster? Far from it.

 

We all went to the cinema to see Thea Sharrock’s Me Before You. Most of us had brought packs of tissues because we had either read the best-selling source novel by Jojo Moyes (who also wrote the film’s screenplay) or had heard that this film was pretty darn emotional.

 

Why did we go to the movies knowing that we would get upset? Well, because a good old fashioned tear-jerker can be surprisingly cathartic.

 

Just as a horror film allows us to feel scared in a safe environment, a weepy movie allows us to get sad, take a deep breath and move on - often, thanks to the emotional release, feeling surprisingly uplifted.

 

Watching Me Before You made me think about the more emotional films that I have watched since starting my 500 Days Of Film challenge. As as result, I have made a list of my top ten tear-jerkers.
