Have you ever been sitting next to a girlfriend and they’ve been blubbing away at a film while you’ve sat there completely stone-faced? The likelihood is, unless you’ve got a complete heart of stone, it’s something manipulative or overly earnest like Titanic or The Notebook, but every so often, a film comes along that, in our society in which men aren’t supposed to show overt emotion, can break even the toughest man and leave him as nothing more than a gibbering, tearful wreck. These are films that, for whatever reason – whether because they’re more “manly” films, or because their emotion is simply so wonderfully honest – will have all of us grabbing our inner-child and hugging them, holding on for dear life.
Here are 10 movies that it’s Ok for men to cry at.
