SPOILER warning: if you haven't seen some of these and don't know the ending already, don't watch! Don't watch if you're wearing mascara, either 😭
Thelma and Louise - "Just Keep Going"
This is one I connect with a lot. The problem with running away always seems to be that when you get there, you're back where you started. The joy and excitement mixed with sadness in this scene always gets me. It's heartbreakingly bittersweet.
Good Will Hunting - "It's Not Your Fault"
A man crying always makes me cry. I really enjoyed watching the connection these two had. I wish there were more men like this, today. The final scene in this movie was a tear jerker, too ("Sorry, I Had to Go See About a Girl")
The Black Swan - "I Was Perfect"
An all-consuming quest for perfection that takes more than it gives. A lot of people can probably identify with this. Natalie was beautifully tragic in this movie.
Now, Voyager - "Don't Let's Ask For the Moon, We Have the Stars"
An oldie but goodie. Sometimes people come into our lives for a reason. They may not play the role we expected and that can be painful, but sometimes it's better to be thankful we have them to begin with.
Steel Magnolias - "I Wanna Know Why..I Don't Think I Can Take This"
I'm not a mom and I might never be, but I think it's pretty universally understood that losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a person. Dally Fields captured the emotions perfectly and if this doesn't make you cry you might have problems.
These also happen to be some of my favorite movies. If anyone else has scenes to share, I'd love to watch! A good cry can be healthy. Hope you enjoyed this take and brought tissues!
