Open thread: With Les Misérables setting off filmgoers's tears, we'd like to hear about the films that get you all emotional

Which films, if any, have driven you to tears?

Les Misérables has been causing a stir in recent weeks for making even hardened cinema buffs glassy eyed. The Guardian's Kira Cochrane wrote:

There have … been tales of sobbing and wailing, of audiences brought low, then tipped right into despair. A video has been circulating of a Long Island family, showing the middle-aged parents crying uncontrollably on the way home from the film. "I hear the first note, I start to cry," says the father, George, before noting he has been to family funerals where he has cried less.

Are you more likely to cry at a sad film – or alternatively is a happy ending, like this one from It's a Wonderful Life, more likely to see you overwhelmed with emotion? »
