What movies have you watched that you have found to be inspirational to you? I have many of them but I will only list two here so I will not be a hog! LOL

1. Fried Green Tomatoes~ Showed me to value special friendships! Made me laugh and cry!
2. It's a Wonderful Life~ Showed me to cherish life and all you love and never take it for granted and to be happy with what you have and where you are.

Your turn:

Have to think about that a bit, but one that comes to mind is "Chariots of Fire."

Local Hero
This movie is all over the place--it's not a "big," epic movie.
It is a film of quiet humor and gorgeous imagery...its inspiration for me is appreciation of the land, fellowship between people, embracing differences--and damn good music.

I love the movie Fried Green Tomatoes.
Tawanda!

I love "Benny and Joon" a hymn to celebrating quirkiness and tolerance. GOOD CHOICE.

Oh, I *adore* Benny and Joon.
It actually has one of my all-time favorite songs, Have A Little Faith In Me, by John Hiatt.
Another film of embracing differences, and yes, tolerance.
