30 Day Film Challenge/Day 15

Today the challenge is a film that broke your heart.

The movie I selected is not necessarily historically accurate in many ways, but the story still left me sad. It continues to be that we punish those who are different than what society considers the ‘norm’ regardless that they should be given the same rights and respect as should be afforded to everyone.

“The Imitation Game” was a great film in my opinion, but it did break my heart to see how society can turn its back on someone who gave so much for the overall good.

(I do not know all the inaccuracies of the film Vs. history, I am basing this on just my viewing of the film.)

This clip is the end of the movie so it is definitely a SPOILER if you have not seen it.







I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the fifteenth day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!

  1. Alan was treated badly, and the film tells his story well.
    I have gone for a more conventional ‘weepie’, but this one is about a dog. All dog-lovers should be ready for tears when they watch this. It reminds me of me and Ollie.
    (It was a true story too, though it happened in Japan)

    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Why is it a good movie about our beloved pets can move us like no other? I would guess because their love is unconditional. I have not seen this, but will put it n my list.

  2. I have seen the Alan Turing film too very sad , he was treated very badly. They do say the Apple icon of an apple with a bite out of it is a nod of the head to Alan Turing, who committed suicide by eating an apple he’d laced with cyanide . It’s a nice touch if true 💜


  3. Sophie’s Choice. Had no idea. Went because it was the first big role for Peter MacNicol, a friend from the Guthrie. Had no idea. Never would have gone if I knew what it was about.

  4. Same as my earlier best film to read when sad–“The Way We Were.” Something about the romance that didn’t work despite the great connection still gets to me.
