Five the Most Inspiring Movies Ever Made
Movies, whether filmed according to some book or not, are often full of wisdom. We may not even realize this until we experience the specific situation in our own lives. Let’s see which movies are a must watch by every person, whether young or old. They are full of highly useful life quotes.
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
This movie is based on the true story of Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Chris takes his family’s savings and invests it in a portable bone-density scanner, which he tries to sell to some doctors. Still, he fails and this investment breaks the family. His wife even leaves him alone with his son. He then takes an unpaid internship planning to become a stockbroker. As we can see here, Chris goes from challenge to challenge, never giving up, believing in his dreams.
The movie Peaceful Warrior was based on a book written by Dan Millman called “Way of the Peaceful Warrior.” Although most movie critics dismissed it as ‘nothing special’, this is a film that has plenty to offer. It is full of inspiring and uplifting quotes. It is a quiet, introspective film, with no loud explosions and sappy romance.
However, it is high on insight and spiritual richness, so it is not surprising that Hollywood generally doesn’t like it. Nick Nolte plays Socrates, the spiritual advisor to gymnast Dan Millman, played by Scott Mechlowicz. Even though he is highly competitive and successful gymnast and also having the support of his family and friends Dan can’t seem to find peace with himself constantly wrestling with a gnawing anxiety of the true meaning of his life.

Life is Beautiful (1997)
The Italian actor Roberto Benigni plays a father who tries everything to protect his son from the horrors of the WWII. They are Jewish family and victims of the Holocaust. One could think that it is practically almost impossible to stay positive and look happy when surrounded by the German army in the concentration camp, but Begnini will prove you wrong. He does his best to encourage his son to smile and not to worry. While pretending to know German, he invents a game for his son, who is amused while starving and in prison.
Forrest Gump (1994)
Forrest Gump was born with unhealthy back, and for that reason, he had to wear braces on his legs. He was a constant target for bullies. Forrest had only one childhood friend who famously advised him to “Run, Forrest, run!” when bullies picked on him. On this occasion, he miraculously broke free of his braces and even continued to enjoy a successful career as a college athlete – he even ran across the country for three years! One of the lessons we can learn from Forest is that you should always try, and that way, you may surprise even yourself.
Of Mice and Men (1992)
Director Gary Sinise took a book written by John Steinbeck and made it into this movie. The story is about the strong willed George and mentally disabled Lennie who travel around America as farm hands. They are dreaming of owning their own land one day. Whenever George gets depressed thinking they could fail, Lennie is there saying something positive and encouraging. Despite being mentally disabled, Lennie is a great man and a good friend.
