Nonfiction Prompt – May 20

Teresa has given us the theme of Memory Lane for the week.

Today it’s movies.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new movie, which isn’t surprising as there is absolutely nothing that takes our fancy!
There are some films that make me cry though:
The 4 hour version of Dances With Wolves goes back to the book and explains a lot more about the Indian way of life. I cried when his horse and Two Socks were killed by the soldiers.
Other tearjerkers are The Colour Purple and The Elephant Man. Several scenes in those get the tears flowing, and Sandra Bullock pulled it off in Practical Magic and While you were Sleeping.
Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life
and also The Glenn Miller Story has me blubbering too.
You might think I either cry a lot or only watch weepy films.
My taste is varied, but a good eye wash never does any harm.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. I rarely ever cry at something I’ve watched but dangit if seeing the Bishop again at the end of Les Miserables doesn’t do it every single time (the second thing that I have cried at was Peter Capaldi’s regeneration in Dr. Who–the only regeneration to ever make me cry).

  4. You must get through a lot of tissues!
