Sad Movies

Be Sociable, Share!


Movie lovers come in all shapes and sizes. For some, there’s nothing better than a brainless comedy. Others stick to the independent and art-house scene. And then there are those who can’t get enough of tearjerkers and sad movies. This article is dedicated to the latter, as it’s jam-packed with weepy classics guaranteed to make you reach for the Kleenex.

Imitation of Life (1959) – After temporarily losing her daughter at the beach, an aspiring actress (Lana Turner) takes in the black widow (Juanita Moore) who helped her. As the years pass, the widow’s daughter–a very fair-skinned girl–tries to pass for white, much to her mother’s chagrin. Also starring Sandra Dee and John Gavin.

Atonement (2007) – Based on the novel by Ian McEwan, this winner of Best Picture of the Year at the 61st British Academy Film Awards tells the heartbreaking tale of a young girl (Saoirse Ronan) who falsely accuses her sister’s (Keira Knightley) lover (James McAvoy) of being a rapist. As the years go by, the girl grows into a woman and comes to grasp the full significance of her accusations. Nominated for seven Academy Awards.

Penny Serenade (1941) – Irene Dunne and Cary Grant play a married couple who endure financial hardships and try to raise an adopted child. Grant would receive an Academy Award nomination for his role in the film. Also starring Edgar Buchanan and Beulah Bondi.

Love Story (1970) – The tragic romance between a Harvard student (Ryan O’Neal) and a girl with a working-class background (Ali MacGraw). Nominated for seven Academy Awards, the film provided us with the famous line “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Tommy Lee Jones has a small role in his feature film debut.

Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) – Based on the novel by James Hilton, this British classic focuses on the life of Charles Edward Chipping (Robert Donat), an elderly former teacher looking back on his 58-career during a dream. Greer Garson co-stars, and Donat would win a Best Actor Oscar for his performance (beating out Clark Gable for Gone with the Wind).

Brief Encounter (1945) – A bored British housewife (Celia Johnson) engages in an extramarital affair with a handsome doctor (Trevor Howard). Since it’s on my list of sad movies, it’s probably safe to assume that they don’t live happily ever after. Considered one of the best British films ever made, it won the Palme d’Or at the 1946 Cannes Film Festival.

If you’re not already blubbering uncontrollably, head out and pick up a few of the sad movies listed above. And once you’re done with these selections, be sure to check out anything adapted from the novels of Nicolas Sparks. The writer of such works as The Notebook and Message in a Bottle, his big-screen adaptations are bound to leaving you sobbing.

Yesterday Will Make You Cry


Yesterday Will Make You Cry


$3.95


A classic restored — the complete and unexpurgated text of the first, most powerful, and most autobiographical novel of this great African-American writer. In 1937 Chester Himes, newly released from a seven-year stretch in the Ohio State Penitentiary for grand larceny, finished his first novel, Yesterday Will Make You Cry. By turns brutal and lyrical and never less than totally honest, it tells the autobiographical story of young Jimmy Monroe’s passage through the prison system, which tests the limits of his sanity, his capacity for suffering, and his definition of love. Stunningly candid about racism, homosexuality, and prison corruption, the book would take sixteen years and four subsequent revisions before being published in much altered form as Cast the First Stone in 1952. Even bowdlerized, it was recognized as a sardonic masterpiece of debasement and transfiguration. This edition presents for the first time the book precisely as Himes intended it to be read, with its raw honesty and startling compassion entirely intact. It now stands definitively as one of the great novels of prison life and one of Himes’s most enduring literary achievements.

 Breeding Of A Hotwife


Breeding Of A Hotwife


$2.99


The stunning conclusion to “The Hotwife Diaries” is here! After immersing themselves in the hotwife and cuckold lifestyle for several months, Connie and her husband Ben are finally ready to take the ultimate step – to breed. Connie has chosen Mark, a young stud rippling with hard muscle, to take her in her marital bed while Ben watches and films the whole experience. But Connie realises that this is more than just fun – that, this time, there will be consequences. After a night of unbelievable sex beyond their wildest expectations, Connie must make a decision that could change her and Ben’s relationship forever. ADULTS ONLY. An erotic novelette of 8,500 words. Contains very strong language and sexual content between consenting adults over the age of 18. Adult themes include unconventional relationships (including wife swapping and cuckolding), and unprotected creampie / cream pie sex with extra-marital partners. This is the third and final book in “The Hotwife Diaries” series. The previous titles, “How To Be A Hotwife” and “Confessions Of A Hotwife”, are also available to buy seperately. EXCERPT: Without saying a word, he slid fully inside me, every inch of steel-like hardness causing me to cry out, a squeal not of pain but of absolute pleasure. He pushed himself as far as he could go, the head of his cock touching my cervix, and he drew close to my face, touching my lips with his as he talked. “Do you feel how deep I am?” I nodded, almost unable to speak. “That’s how deep I’m going to come inside you,” he said with a mischievous grin. “Deep and impossible to stop.” I put my arms around the back of his neck. “Make love to me, slow and hard,” I said, kissing his lips. “Make me pregnant.”
