I cried watching

Recently I watched The Selfish Giant by Clio Bernard which tore me to bits. Although I've cried at many films for a myriad of reasons. More often than not I cry at the beauty of film. My favourite reaction to a film is to cry watching it for that reason. There is nothing like it for me. A few examples I can think of in which this has happened are: American Beauty, Lady Bird, Calm With Horses, Good Will Hunting, Gods Own Country, Paris, Texas, Portrait of a Lady On Fire, Tomboy, Olive Kitterage, I cant name more, there have been too many!
