I love bittersweet movies. I cried my eyes out (loudly) in the theater with my best friend Jamie when we saw The Notebook and it’s one of my favorite memories with her. There is something about a good “movie cry” that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Although for me it’s easy… I cry sometimes while watching “My First Place” on HGTV. Pathetic.

This clip is from an 80’s movie that is one of my favorites. My mom and I used to watch it all the time. In Stella “The title character is a vulgar and unfashionable single mother who, determined to give her daughter Jenny all the opportunities she never had, ultimately makes a selfless sacrifice to ensure her happiness” (wiki). The clip enters with Stella crying in her living room. She just pretended to not care about Jenny in order to force her to want to live with her father who Stella believes can give her a better life. The wedding scene breaks my heart every time.
