    Not necessarily cry, but certainly feel bad for the protagonist...

    "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do..."

    Not me, of course, but my son. Toy Story 3.

    First when entering the furnace and second when Andy gives away toys at end.

    Yesiree, that one gets my son each time.

    My son. As long as we are clear about that.

    I even have to hold his hand when we watch it. To comfort him.

    Oh yes, that was horrible. And when she first visited at the library and needed help to find a book (I think by Emily Dickinson), and the librarian was so condescending, remember?

    Some librarians can be that way can't they?
    Actually I don't remember that particular part but I will revisit the film.

    It's a very good movie (and novel), Meryl Streep was awarded an Oscar for best actress I think, and she managed to find just the right accent.

    Although I've not seen the film a book that "got me going" was The Kite Runner.

    I have also missed the film for some reason. (The book is very good and so is his next, A Thousand Splendid Suns).

    No movie always makes me cry. The last one which surprisingly brought a tear to my eye was Mr. Holland's Opus at the final scene. Being an old musician, I guess I identified.
