I wanted to share inspiring movies that has touched me and encouraged me to become a better person. :D

Do you have also some you want to share?

 

Courageous (extract)

 

Gifted hands: the true story of Ben Carson 

 

: From homeless to Harvard, the true story of Liz Murray who entered to Harvard despite the fact she came from a very dysfunctionnal family

 

 

:Front of the class, the true story of a man with tourettes' syndrome who finally achieved to become a teacher despite all the difficulties . I liked it a lot!

 

I learned a lot from those movies. They helped me to understand one has always to persevere to achieve his(her) dream despite all the difficulties he (she) migth face.

Everything is possible to those who believe.

Great topic Gege ^_^

 

It's funny that just few days ago I saw "Homeless to Harvard". I randomly found it on youtube and I remembered I saw it ( and loved it ) when I was little and used to watch Hallmark movies and shows. I decided to give it another try just for curiosity... I literally wept almost the entire movie and had a lot of thoughts running through my mind until (fortunately) I eventually fell asleep at 2 - 3 am or so. Talking about Hallmark, now I'm thinking I would like to see again "Alice in Wonderland" (1999). That would be lovely.

 

An inspiring movie that comes into my mind right now is "Into the wild". A more recent one I saw that I thought was inspiring was Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken". The complet story behind it is even more inspiring. Another one would be "The pursuit of Happyness"... But there are many many... I will think about them and come back with more titles. :)

 

Trailers,

 

Into the wild:

 

Unbroken:

Wooow!

Thank you very much Gabi and Steadfastmadcap for sharing.

@Gabi: I also went to see Unbroken....It was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So inspiring!!! This man has forgiven everybody who hurt him so badly ...He was filled with tje love of God and forgiveness...

I learned that he passed away last year...at the age of 84...

He was a great testimony...

 

@ Steadfastmadcap : I have no word ....but it encourages me to keep having a healthy diet...

 

There are also these movies I did enjoy very much :

 

-Men of honor

-Coach Carter

I thought The Passion of the Christ was very inspiring (even though it is painful to watch).

 

Also The Shawshank Redemption... And K-PAX.

AWESOOOOOooooome movie !!!! IT WAS so inspiring! I did like the fact he was in lovewith her and didn't dare to touch her because he respected her sincerely and wanted her best.

Beautiful love story...

Beautiful message concerning abortion, and redemption in God...

This movie is about the true story of Hellen KELLER.

This woman is an icon for me.

She was born blind, death,mute :o

Despite of that she became a world changer !!! After becoming a christian in yer youth, she managed to obtain her degree at university.

Then she has been a writer (12 books and numerous articles),. She has been a lecturer,

She did a little politics...

EXTRAORDINARY ! WOW! WHAT A WOMAN ! She inspires me !

Oh my gosh !!!!!!!! I discovered a movie based on a true story... His name is Desmond Doss...During World War II , he never killed anyone because of his faith in Jesus. He only helped to save many lives... I think many guys will enjoy watching this movie (gun, war, battles and so on -_-).... I usually don't like watching this kind of movie (because I dislike violence)...but this one seems worth it...I haven't watched it yet...

 

The movie below is not particularly inspiring...but is simply a true moving and encouraging story

I've finally watched the movie Hackshaw Ridge !!

I highly recommend it...

I simply hid my eyes behind my hands for some hard scenes during the war...

But the movie is really worth it !

Ok, this one is not based on a true story...but I've found it really very inspiring....because it made me think of daily "ordinary" heroes...

I mean...this movie could have been based on a true story...the fact that he became this "awesome character" after having experienced deep troubles and pain in life... The fact that he confronted his strongest fear and turned it into his srongest power....For me that is inspiring and I really enjoyed this movie. I could identify with many characters...And this movie also made me think about current issue on society, such as "mafia people" who are never caught up, despite  the fact of being known as dangerous by the police...I really enjoyed this movie...

Edit : It's a movie from 2004 ^_^
