Tearjerkers are films that crawl into your soul and demand that you shed tears. They are expertly crafted with soft lighting, depressing scores, and brilliant actors taking themselves to the emotional brink.

Some people think these types of films are maudlin and overly manipulative (*cough* me *cough*), but others are utterly obsessed with the catharsis these movies provide. For two hours you can release all of your pent up emotions, get out a good cry, and no one in your own family has to die.

If you're one of the people who considers a good tearjerker to be its own emotional sort of porn, we've assembled a list of 10 classic movies that are legendary for their ability to make you sob. All of them are easily accessible on streaming. The only thing we can't give you is a box of tissues and a shoulder to cry on.

1

'The Fault In Our Stars'

What's sadder than doomed first love? Doomed first love between two comely teens with cancer. The Fault In Our Stars repeatedly exposes us to the trauma of living with cancer (and of loving people with the horrific disease). However, what really gets most people to cry is how John Green's celebrated story constantly teases us with the hope that Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) might actually have a happy ending. Spoiler: They don't. [Where To Stream The Fault In Our Stars]

'Sophie's Choice'

Meryl Streep is devastating in this classic tale of heartache and Holocaust survivors. Yup, this is a Holocaust movie. So, you know it's going to make you cry. However, what makes this film all the more infamous is Streep's character's titular choice. We learn that the Nazis made Sophie choose which of her two children would live and which would die. Of course, she didn't make the right choice…or did she? (She didn't. There is no "right" choice. It's a fucked up and horrific situation.) [Watch Sophie's Choice]

'Terms of Endearment'

Cancer strikes again! This time, though, Shirley MacLaine has to watch her grown daughter, played by Debra Winger, pass away slowly. Adding to the stress is the fact that mother and daughter have a tumultuous relationship due to the fact that Winger's character, Emma, got married and had children young against her mother's wishes. The film won five Oscars and has made many people sob uncontrollably. [Watch Terms of Endearment]

'The Hours'

When I was 17 years old, my entire family left me alone for one long week during the summer. I did not throw a party, though. I rented The Hours. I don't believe in regret as a concept, but if I could change one thing about my life, I would have rented Clueless instead. Yes, Stephen Daldry's ambitious film boasts mesmerizing performances and perfectly weaves three harrowing storylines together in exquisite tandem. However, the themes of loneliness, death, depression, and illness are not what an isolated 17-year-old girl needs to deal with when she's already afraid of every little creak in an empty house. Maybe I didn't cry, but I did plunge into a deep three day long funk. [Watch The Hours]

5

'Love Story'

Think of Love Story as the original The Fault In Our Stars. Two young, spirited, and beautiful people fall in love. One of them dies. It's very sad. There's a famous catchphrase, too. The big difference is Love Story thrills in surrounding its lovers with the beautiful, but cold, landscape of Boston in the winter. [Watch Love Story]

'Ordinary People'

No matter how dysfunctional your family is, the Jarretts are probably much worse. The family is already fractured after one son dies in a boating accident and splinters even more so when the surviving son, Conrad (Timothy Hutton), attempts suicide. The film features blistering performances and a lot of very depressing moments. So, if you're into death, depression, and messed up families, but you don't want to think about cancer, Ordinary People might be the film for you. [Watch Ordinary People]

'Boys Don't Cry'

What could possibly make a tragic love story even sadder? Dash in some bigotry and have all the sorrow spring from a horrific real life hate crime. Yes, Boys Don't Cry is based on a true story. So, while you're reaching for the Kleenex you can remember that the terrible murder depicted in this film really happened. [Watch Boys Don't Cry]

8

'Rudy'

True story: when I was a kid and people told me that Rudy was a "real tearjerker" that "made dudes cry," I naturally assumed that Rudy died on the football field at the end. So, I never finished the film because I didn't want to see that. Apparently, though, he lives! He gets on the team and gets carried off! It's a story about triumph! Oh, see, happy things can make people cry, too. [Watch Rudy]

'The Shawshank Redemption'

When I watched The Shawshank Redemption for the first time last fall and griped that I thought it was rather schmaltzy, I was inundated with hate mail. Okay, fine, it makes you cry! I agree what happens to Gil, Brooks, and everyone else is terrible! But my point was that like every other title on this list, it's tearjerker porn. It's scientifically engineered to make you cry! Did you cry? Okay, then. It did its job and you are a human being with a heart. [Where To Stream The Shawshank Redemption]

'Life Is Beautiful'

Oh God, I want to sob just thinking of this film. Every Holocaust film is absolutely heartbreaking, but Life is Beautiful is particularly brutal because the beginning of the film feels like a gorgeous and magnificent daydream. Roberto Benigni stars and directs this film about an optimistic bookseller who spins stories and invents games to shield his beloved son from the reality that they are in a concentration camp. [Watch Life Is Beautiful]
