A good movie can make us feel really good. It can lift us up from the sorrow and pain caused by some personal catastrophe. That could be a breakup, an accident, a serious disease, financial problems, and even death of a loved one. Nobody is prepared for neither of those catastrophes and a good story can show you that the life still goes on.
