RomComs and funny movies have their place, but sometimes a tearjerker movie is what you all need for a cathartic cry. It’s quite natural now if you’re crying a little more than you used to before the word ‘quarantine’ bore any special meaning to you.
Whether you are dealing with heartbreak, illness, it’s time for you to release oxytocin and endorphins. One of the best ways to get the waterworks going is to watch movies that will make you cry.
So we have assembled a list of 10 movies that will get you in the mood for sobbing:
1. PS I love you
This is a must-watch movie that will make you cry every time. The story is about a happily married couple who are crazy about each other but only some time into the marriage. The husband writes and leaves her ten loving letters to his wife guiding her through this tough time. Need we say more?
2. Pearl Harbour
This is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours is about grief and it’s hard to watch at times. Not just for the war but the American triangle that will make you even sadder. The storyline is about how on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese military staged a surprise attack on the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. Its centerpiece is focused on a love story set amid the lead-up to the attack, its aftermath, and the Doolittle Raid.
3. Little Women
There are plenty of reasons to smile about in this movie but there’s also a metric ton of heartbreak and pain that will have you in tears. From Beth’s death to Jo’s speech about loneliness, we assure you that this movie is an absolute sob-fest in the best way possible. This movie is an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s iconic novel.
4. A Walk to Remember
Remember that an aforementioned movie that follows the romance between a modest high school student and a rebellious classmate? Well, this is the movie! This movie captured the hearts of millions in 2002. If you have missed it by any chance, now’s the time to watch it!
5. Me Before You
If there’s a movie that will make you cry every time, then ‘Me Before You’ is one such movie. This movie will make you sad but feel loved at the same time. Starring gorgeous Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, the plot follows the unlikely romance between a quirky, working-class girl and a quadriplegic who believes his life isn’t worth living.
6. Romeo and Juliet
We all know how this one ends. But there’s something awe-struck about Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio’s perfectly ’90s teen angst makes this star-crossed Shakespeare duo’s love story all the more tragic.
7. Pride and Prejudice
Love might be complicated we know, but Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy’s relationship takes the cake. This movie would have been shorter if they just were so damn prideful (ha! Jokes apart)), but then we would have less Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy, and that itself makes you cry even harder. When Darcy makes his way across a foggy field and proposes to Elizabeth Bennet in the dawn light is bound to make the audience cry out for them.
8. Dead Poets Society
Dead Poets Society is one of those movies to watch when you need a good cry. In this movie, Robin Williams plays the role of a teacher who inspires his students to seize the day. He wanted a group of young men to figure out a way in this scary world, overbearing parents who won’t quit meddling and the life-altering power of literature.
9. Sophie’s Choice
Meryl Streep stars in the 1982 Holocaust drama adapted from William Styron’s 1979 novel. The titular choice in this film is synonymous with no-win situations. The story is about a Polish lady who survived the Nazi concentration camps and is haunted by the ghosts of that past she was forced to make a brutal decision that we won’t disclose here for the readers who have not yet watched the film.
10. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This movie is embedded in our memories forever! It is that kind of movie that crushes the soul but also brings sunshine to the heart. Each scene in this movie gradually takes us deeper into their story, till we realise that this movie is happening in Joel’s mind!
