I've been a movie fanatic for years, but lately I've come across a few fairly recent but highly under-publicized Movies That Could Change Your Life.
The Flying Scotsman. A bipolar Scottish cyclist goes for a world-record on a bike made of old washing machine parts. So. Good.
In America. A contemporary Irish family emigrates to New York. At the end I asked Noah, through tears, "Are you crying too?" His response: "No [sob]!"
Music Within. My uncle has cerebral palsy, and Michael Sheen absolutely rocked my face off as a man with cerebral palsy. In my opinion, he outdid Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot. Oh, and Ron Livingston = Also Amazing.
Before Sunset. Apparently this is a sequel to Before Sunrise, but dude you can watch this as a standalone work of dialogue genius.
Once. This actually won an Oscar for best song in 2006, but I didn't see it until last year. It's been called the best music film of our generation, and I believe it.
Any hidden gems you'd like to share?
