Though I suppose Sophie's Choice, or Kramer Verses Kramer might have been less embarrassing and more obvious choices.

I watched Sophie's Choice and Playing for Time and Shindler's List once each and they kept me up nights instead of sobbing-I'm sure I would now though

Wall-E yep
an offspring took me to see it I remember saying "why didn't you TELL me?"

anyhow
I'm a soppy b@stard

re-worded because I wasn't making any sense(well less than usual)

I saw Sophie's Choice when I was in my teens I think. I haven't seen it since and certainly don't think I could watch it now, as a parent.
Schindler's List, awfulness, but I don't think I cried.
I don't know Playing for Time.

Aww, Grey, yes Wall-E is much more moving than expected, I think.

The Colour Purple, Ophrey Winfrey character could visit her family for the shortest time over Christmas.. That gets me every time on so many levels.

Ah yes. That is a very sad part of the film.

I can weep at the drop of a hat at most films which have animals or kids or people or robots....well actually any film that is in the slightest bit sad or happy after a sad bit, possibly even just happy or even sad and Wall-E is one of my favourite films ever.

Books are different, I think one recently but can't recall which it was, think maybe where a child was suffering FGM in a book by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (audiobook very powerful narration)

I find it really interesting that there does seem to be a general consensus that films are more likely to affect us this way than books. I wonder why that is...

Re Wall-E, somehow the robots are more 'real' than the people, and far more affecting. It's Eve and Wall-E's interactions which are so touching.

I did cry over some music recently, it was just so incredibly beautiful, just wish I could remember what it was.

I think music is different again and I can be moved by music (but the same pieces can affect me differently depending on mood). I deliberately didn't include it here, but it could be another thread :)

^ hahaha! No, it was just that you sounded... diffident... about doing it ;)

Ach, nothing worse worse than someone who starts a thread and then abandons it! ::)


Well obviously there are millions of things worse than this, but you get the idea... ;D
