Movies That Need Warning Labels II

On Thurdays I like to feature resources specifically for widows, do today is an on-going source of our very own--a list of movies that'll make you cry! Now sometimes we all need a good cry, and this list is good for that, too. But if you don't want to be ambushed, keep these movies in mind.

It's about time to update the list from last summer. Lots of new ones out there! I never realized that widows and widowers were so popular! Here are some movie rentals to watch out for if you've had enough grief and don't need to see it on your tv screen. Please send in titles that need to be added to this list. I don't watch many movies, so this list is in sore need of updating. Also send titles for new releases--now playing-- that need warning labels, OK?

The following movies are about widows or widowers. As far as movies with death scenes?---a list of movies WITHOUT death scenes would be more manageable! But send in the movies that you think people in mourning would want to be forewarned about.

This is NOT a list to NOT EVER WATCH, it's just warning you that a widow/widower and/or lost love or lost dreams are story elements. Chances of crying are pretty good. For days when you need a good cry, these movies will help!

  1. Inception, while good, centers around the death of the main character's wife.

    Oddly enough, the version of "Little Women" with Katherine Hepburn. I absolutely lost it, unexpectedly - even though it's Beth who dies, and not a husband. I think it's because Beth was the one sister who was so slow to blossom and never got the chance to reach what WE would have thought was her "full potential." At any rate, I can't watch it now. Not for a while.

  6. Hi Ferree -

    I'm not a big movie buff, so I haven't run into this problem.

    I've been wanting to see Letters to Julia, but never could connect for some reason. Perhaps the Lord was protecting me. :)


    P.S. Just thought of the oldie, Love Story.

  7. This is wonderful blog. I love it.
