We are always excited about the weekends because we get more time to relax and watch movies on Netflix or other platforms. A lazy day can be fun but you can make it even more interesting if you watch movies that are based on real-life stories of courage, the resilience of the human spirit, and greatness. So for this coming weekend, I have collected 5 inspirational movies you can watch. Movies that will absolutely change the way you love, live, and think. Enjoy reading (and watching)!
1. Good Will Hunting (1997)
The movie focuses on the story of an unrecognized genius (Will Hunting). The movie shows how the main character comes to the correct path. This inspiring movie has won three Oscars. The cherry on the cake is Damon’s inspiring performance throughout the movie. In the end, the movie will enable you to see how opportunities change lives. Listen to learn, diagnose before you prescribe. Mirroring the other person to understand him. Robin Williams sticked with the Southie rule and waited for Will to talk first during first session.
This movie took its time to believably develop with raw and funny dialogue to bring about its credible conclusions.
Star Cast: Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck
2. The Fault in Our Stars (2014)
The Fault in Our Stars is one of the best love stories which turns out to be a good inspirational movie too. The movie is about two cancer patients who met through an author in Amsterdam. The movie taught us that life is too short to sorrow, we should all just make happy memories and enjoy life. The most important point, the most beautiful feeling in the world is love.
The movie can be a wake-up call to some preteens — and, of course, adults as well — that you never quite know the struggles the people around you are going through. Secondly, It’s okay to feel your feelings. That’s the thing about pain – it demands to be felt. The Fault in our Stars is a huge reminder that, even when you’re young, you are not immortal. With that in mind, get out there and appreciate the small moments.
Star Casts: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff
3. Into the Wild (2007)
The movie is about the feeling of toughest situations when we want to leave everything and go for a trip. But, life is full of surprises and actually requires a lot of efforts. If you are also feeling the same, the movie is for you. The story is based on a guy who gets the feeling of wanderlust.
So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a person than a secure future.
Star Cast: Emile Hirsch, Vince Vaughn, Catherine Keener
4. The Theory of Everything (2014)
This movie is based on the biopic of Stephen Hawking. The movie highlights his career, life and motor neuron disorder. After all, Stephen became one of the world-renowned physicists. The movie is inspiring in its own way, leaves the audience numb and forces them to think about doing something achievable in their lives.
Happiness doesn’t just happen. You have to search for it. This will sound ironic but Mr. Hawking didn’t just sit around and waited for things to happen to him. No matter how severely incapacitated he was. It didn’t stop him from actively living his life and willingly accepting the challenges that it comes with.
Remember to look up a the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
Star Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode
5. The Bucket List (2007)
Two unrelated men, one a corporate billionaire and the other a simple mechanic, are brought closer because they share a fate. And that fate is a terminal illness. The Bucket List is about a chance encounter between these two strangers, who then venture on a unique journey together to tick off everything they’ve always wanted to do in life, but now even more so, because there’s not much life left to live.
This movie gives a renewed meaning to the phrase You Only Live Once, narrated by two people on the verge of death. The Bucket List is a must watch movie for anybody who continues to put off their lifelong dreams for a future “someday”.
Star cast: Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean Hayes
We all need some inspiration in our life. When I feel low I start to watch motivational movies because it makes me realise that there’s always a solution. In the end, everything will be alright and if not, then it’s not the end. What are your favourite inspirational movies? Mine is with no doubt The Fault in Our Stars.
Lots of love,
