Now some of these movies are deeply emotional and/or so touching that they will most likely make you cry. Know that it is actually very good however to feel these emotions and to cry, because many of us often do not release these types of emotions enough and releasing them can be very beneficial for your mental and physical health. Many studies have shown that chemicals build up in the body during times of elevated stress or just throughout everyday life, and that emotional tears which can be released through watching these types of movies can actually work to rid these toxins and waste products (See studies at bottom of article).
Emotional tears have even been shown to release an endorphin, leucine-enkephalin which reduces pain and can actually improve mood. Along with the emotional movies, there are also many movies in here that carry with them very profound and deep messages that you will most likely carry with you for the rest of your life.
So without further ado, I present to you a list of some of the most deep, emotional and thought-provoking movies you will ever see, with each I have provided an image, a brief description and occasionally a trailer (not all have trailers either because they give away to much or because they do not do the movie justice) I highly recommend you watch all of them.
