Inspirational Movies Everyone Should Watch
La Vita E Bella – Life Is Beautiful (1997)
La Vita E Bella (Life Is Beautiful) is a 1997 Italian drama movie which is one of the most inspirational and wonderful movies that I have ever seen in my life. Roberto Benigni is the director and he also starred in this beautiful movie. He plays a Jewish book keeper who has a wonderful romance with the help of his humor. He must use this great quality to shield his 5 year old son from the Nazi death camp. He convince his son that they are playing a game to minimize the horror around them. Part of the movie was inspired from true event, because Benigni’s father has survived three years in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. La Vita E Bella is amazing movie who had commercial and financial success, and become one the biggest inspirational movies in history! Roberto Benigni won the Academy Award for best actor for his role in this movie, and the movie itself won three Academy Awards.
Sylvester Stallone plays an underdog club fighter who gets a once in a lifetime chance to fight and overcome all odds to become the world heavyweight champion of all time in the 1976 movie Rocky. This wonderful movie is a true American classic that will inspire you to never give up on anything. Rocky is probably one of the biggest inspirational movie that has ever been made and he turned Sylvester Stallone in big movie star. The movie has five successful sequels.
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
The Pursuit of Happyness is another great inspirational movie with very important message: don’t let anybody to tell you that you can’t do something. So if you ever feel down, check out this movie, which is based on Chris Gardner’s true story. Will Smith plays Gardner, a salesman who remains without his wife and without his home, and he struggles to secure a better life for his son. Throughout his journey he never gives up, he believe in himself and stood firm to his goals in life. The movie is just amazing and speaks a lot of a father’s love for his son.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins starred in this great inspirational movie from 1994 which definitely deserves to be on the list. The Shawshank Redemption is an amazing drama movie that will make you think about freedom and life. The movie tells the story about the banker Andy Dufresne who spends two decades in Shawshank State Prison, because of the murder of his wife and his lover, despite his claims that he is innocent.
Forrest Gump (1994)
Forrest Gump is an epic comedy-drama movie based on the novel by Winston Groom. Tom Hanks has the main role in this movie which tells the life story of Forrest Gump, a naive, honest man from Alabama who has strength to carrie on his promise in the toughest of times. Forest Gump is perhaps one of the most inspirational film characters of all time, the epitome of inspiration for years to come. The movie has a great message: life is unpredictable, just like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get, you’ll never know what will happen tomorrow so never let your guard down.
