Movies are capable of bringing things to life with emotions so strong, it’s easy to forget that you’re just watching a movie. As we watch, we become a part of the characters’ lives and stories; We see through their eyes, and feel every emotion they feel. With such a powerful and emotional medium, it’s easy for movies to make us laugh, feel joy, and in many cases, feel sad and cry over what’s happening on screen. Get tissue paper, because there are only a few films with tear ends.
