    "Edward Scissorhands"  actually stopped me from committing suicide long ago. I hope this answers your question, it is a really great one.

    One of the most recent films I watched that I would consider quite life altering and with deep meaning is the Adjustment Bureau. Not only is it a great film but it really opens your eyes up to "Chance" and "Fate" and whether or not someone has a plan for all of us.

    What a great question. I read a book called "A man named Dave". The book was written by a man called Dave Pelzer who had suffered abuse and torture at the hands of his mother all through his childhood. He went on and grew up to be a wonderful compassionate man who is very caring and talks about his experiences in the book. He suffered so much emotionally and physically, a survivor who didn't allow his past to ruin his future. I was reduced to tears reading about his life, yet he believes that the challenges he faced made him who he is today. A true gentleman and an inspiration.

    I read a book when I was about 15 called "Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance" It has nothing to do with motorcycle maintenance but it made me change my whole outlook on life. I advise everyone to read it at least once.

    @CarltheCritic1291 That is an amazingly brave thing to admit.

    As for the life changer - reading CATCHER IN THE RYE as a teen changed the way I thought of literature as a much more reality-based and modern reflection of how we live. I can see why people tire of it's self-absorption, but you can't deny it's really well-written.
