The Color Purple
Based on a classic best-seller by Alice Walker, this is one of those movies who stood the test of time. A Steven Spielberg creation minus the flashy special effects and sci-fi based plot, plus award-winning performances from the actors, this drama is set to move you.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
There's more to Jack Nicholson than just playing the usual villain in a story. He proved it in "About Schmidt" and this is another one of the movies that proves he can be a great dramatic actor who can move the audience. I have not read the book where this movie is based from, but the witty lines, great performances can make you laugh and cry and maybe make you nuts once in a while.
