9 Netflix Picks That Are Bound To Make You Bawl Your Eyes Out

Ah, we all love a good cry


Before now, we've brought you Netflix documentaries, new releases and pick-me-ups.

But now it's time for some bring-me-downs. Yes – sad movies.

They may be oldies but they're also absolute goldies. 

1. The Best Of Me

If you've ever experienced a "one that got away" heartbreak then prepare to fucking bawl. 

The story revolves around two childhood sweethearts who are reunited 20 years later resulting in an epic love story.

2. Remember Me

The plot twist of all plot twists – this movie is extremely sad and will make you hug your loved ones longer and harder. 

3. 6 Years 

A lot of us would be familiar with that US Visa and Green Card struggle.

This is the story of impractical love that knows no bounds. 

4. Before We Go

Two strangers grow into one another's most trusted confidants on an adventurous night stranded in New York City. 

And it proves to be very interesting. 

5. Endless Love

A privileged, princess of a gal falls for a reckless charismatic lad. 

A bit of a disaster with two overly attractive actors but a definite bawler. 

6. The Shawshank Redemption

As classic as it gets, The Shawshank Redemption is my choice for the night. 

A tale of the ultimate bromance starring the fantastic Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins. 

7. The Titanic

I re-watched this recently for the first time in years. And it's still as much of a tear jerker now as it was then. 

Jack and Rose forever <3

8. Oranges and Sunshine

A corrupt tale that will make you cry your eyes out.

Based on a true story, Oranges and Sunshine centres on a social worker who reunites migrant children with their parents.  

9. Just Like Heaven

An old, shpooky classic starring the wonderful Reese Witherspoon. And the ever-so-average Mark Ruffalo. 

Grab that box of tissues before getting too comfortable – you're gonna need it.
