Movies and stories in general have the capacity of evoking real emotions and i was wondering which movies made you cry and why? My list: - Dances with Wolves The end when he is leaving the tribe and Wind in his Hair, his best friend, is saying good buy from the top of the hill - his is the most direct outburst of loss while the whole tribe watches them go. A sign of true friendship. - Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Actually two scenes - when they exit Moria after Gandalf fell and are grieving, such a powerful scene about loss ( again). And the second is when Frodo tries to slip away unseen at the end but is caught by Sam, who nearly drowns following Frodo - "Don't you leave him Samwise Gamgee!". Everybody should have a friend like Sam in their life, i believe the world would be much better if we had more Sam's. - Schindler's List I believe no explanation is needed, that movie should be required watching for everybody at least once in their life to understand true evil and true heroism.
