Inspirational Movies List - Laura Dawn Lewis writes: The films & stories that make you want to be a better person, fill you with hope or make you grateful for the gifts you have! Hankies in hand, get ready!  These are the films you will watch from the first second all the way through just so you can experience the wonder of human triumph.  They are the perennial favorites, the movies you want to share with your children, grandchildren and each other.  These are the films you never tire of and welcome your heart like a long lost friend. In November 2009 we updated this list to include new films that have appeared since we originally created it in 2002.  The films presented range from pure drama to comedy and true stories.  Each has strong storylines,  incredible characters and showcase the human spirit, hope and perseverance. If you need a mental pick-me-up or just a good cry through happy tears, you'll want to watch each of these films again and again.
