The legend that is actor/director Clint Eastwood turns 89 years old today! He stars in some of my all time favourite films, Million Dollar Baby and The Bridges of Madison County.
Three childhood friends who’s lives were changed forever in the summer of 1975 when Dave Boyle was taken away by two men. His two friends Jimmy and Sean were left watching as he was put into the back of the car. Then in the present day a tragedy brings the three back together again.
Earl Stone is 90 years old and has let his family down constantly over the years, he is a Korean War veteran and had been a horticulturist. When he ends up on even tougher times he ends up working for the Mexican drug cartel as a driver through Illinois.
I absolutely love this scene in The Bridges of Madison County! Easily one of my favourite romantic dramas, with so many heartbreaking scenes!
This post is part of the “No You’re Crying!” Blogathon, which is taking a look at all of the different films that have moments that make us cry! Let’s face it we just love to have a good cry at a film, it really does help at times! At one point they did not really effect me very much, but now I cry for all different reasons when watching a film. So with this list I have tried to pick the seven films which have made me cry (and sob) the most considering the list in general would be rather long now. I have mixed it up a little bit with the truly sad and extremely romantic moments.
I must also warn you that due to this blog post looking at different parts of films it therefore will contain some SPOILERS.
