    Ikiru ( Kurosawa) ikiru means to be or to live.its about a man who finds out he is about to die, and is trying to find some meaning in his life. beautifully acted and thought out.

    Shawshank Redemption (as already mentioned, and not surprisingly).

    three colors blue ( a woman's understanding of her life, her past life, loss, love and much more).

    Raging Bull

    Notice how they all contain the element of fighting, but that's one of life's important action.

    Blood Diamond makes you think about the origins of diamonds and how much blood was spilled to polish it.

    Love Actually makes you understand that as long as you love or are loved, life goes on even in poor circumstances.

    Walk The Line makes you understand that love, when it is meant to be, knows no bound and that everything you will do will push you further into the arms of the guy you're trying so hard to avoid.

    The X-Men classes teaches you that you might not fit in society but that you have something special about you and if you want to feel more confident, you should cultivate / workout that special thing you have.

    Nemo teaches that you should allow your kids to grow without being overprotective.

      Little Miss Sunshine : Be yourself
      Dan in Real Life : whether love is convenient or not, it will happen
      The 6th sense : you only see what you believe. Fear can hold you back.
      and so many more :p

    The first three movies that come to mind are ...

    Pay It Forward

    The Power of One

    Devil's Advocate (and not just because Keanu Reeves is in it)

    Yes, I can definitely think of three beautiful and inspiring movies right away
    I think that "A Walk to Remember" is one of those movies, and secondly I would say "Fireproof", and the third would be "Courageous". In addition, "Pay it Forward" is one of the best movies I've seen, with an inspiring story. I also want to add, that if you have not had a chance to see any of these movies, you might want to check them out!
