Two of my favorites

Shadowlands is my all-time favorite movie. It's a tear-jerker, but so good. It's the story of C.S. Lewis and his marriage late in life. He marries his wife while she is in the hospital with bone cancer. It's a beautifully told story. Anthony Hopkins is incredible, and the other actors are great too.

Secondhand Lions is a feel-good movie. A boy goes to spend the summer with his two uncles, who are the subjects of many intimidating rumors. It's funny, touching, and a good story. If you want something to make you smile, I recommend checking it out.

Yeah, i'm going to put Shadowlands on my queue :) It may be one I have to watch by myself though!

Shadowlands does sound good. We have seen Secondhand Lions, and it was pretty cute. Just something funny about two guys and their funny adventures.

Hillary, I'm not sure who you are, but Shadowlands isn't a chick flick. My husband loves it too.
