Movies that touched my Heart - I

Hi Guys,

Certain people get emotional and become characters of all the movies they see. But for people like me, tears are very precious and they come out only when I see very emotive movies. Here, I bring out some of those movies which really brought tears in my eyes.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Released in 1975, this movie directed by Milos Forman deals with the hard times faced by the patients of a mental institution. Jack Nicholson arrives at the hospital in order to escape from the hard labor of his prison term. He tries to bring fun into the patients before he goes out of the hospital.

The ward is taken care by Nurse Louise Fletcher, who ill treats patients with embarrassing treatments. Jack comes to know that he can’t get out of the hospital even if he is mentally fit. He encourages other patients to do their works and befriends them. He steals a school bus and takes the patients to a short tip and earns a terrible name. Meanwhile he gets into brawl with Louise and is hence treated ruthlessly.

Finally Jack has a master plan to escape along with a Chief, who is acting as a deaf and dumb person. They get into trouble before executing the plan and Jack’s end is very shocking. Some of the scenes including the terrible treatments bring tears.

The acting of Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher are so good and they add feel to the movie. Deservingly, both got Oscar awards and the movie amassed 5 Oscars.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This movie is directed by Robert Zemeckis in 1994,  stars Tom Hanks who plays the lead role as Forrest Gump. He is not very smart, but is somehow present in all historical events from his young age. He meets Jenny (Robin Wright) the first day he goes to school and she is the only girl whom he could think of in his entire life.

Jenny likes Forrest Gump, but neglects him just because he isn’t smart. Forrest is not intelligent, but one way or another he always meet good people and fortune favors him and so he is always in the history book. But Jenny eludes him till the end and when he finds her, there is a shocking truth. The scene in which Tom Hanks speaks to Jenny’s grave shows all the feelings he had for her.

There are so many wonderful quotes in this movie. ‘Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you get’. Forrest proposes to Jinny, ‘I’m not a smart man… But I know what love is’. This movie got 6 Oscar Awards and it is no surprise that Tom Hanks got the award for Best Actor.

(To be continued…)

Happy Reading!!!
