Movies that...


The Stoning of Soraya M.

Unfortunately this is based on a true story. The movie made me very angry and broke my heart.


North Country

This one is a bit more positive than The Stoning of Soraya M.  The main character actually makes a difference and fights against injustice.

Les Miserables

One of the most touching movie scenes ever (in my opinion) is in Les Miserables. A bishop offers a former convict, Jean Valjean, a place to sleep and eat. Jean Valjean ends up stealing silver from the church. He gets caught and is brought back to answer for his crime. The bishop tells that the silver was a gift. He also adds that Valjean left in such a hurry that he forgot the rest: silver candlesticks. Jean Valjean gets a new chance. A new beginning. 

The musical is filled with heartbreaking tragedies but there is also hope.
