2 The Green Mile (1999)
John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan (RIP)) is an enormously huge black man accused of a heinous crime. The charge? Rape and murder of a child. But, while in custody, John exhibits incredible healing powers. How could a man who could magically heal untold misery be capable of such a dastardly crime?
The plot revolves around whether or not John Coffey can escape the death penalty. But, along the way, he selflessly lends his mysterious gift of healing to help anyone he can. Tom Hanks plays Paul Edgecomb, a guard who sympathizes with John Coffey, despite conflictedly having to perform his duty to keep him imprisoned. David Morse plays Brutus ‘Brutal’ Howell, a guard who doesn’t care for John Coffey, only choosing to see him as a prisoner and not the gentle savior he is.
This is a movie that will tug at your heartstrings. The late Michael Clarke Duncan who played John Coffey became a cult figure representing kindness after this movie’s release.
The movie has over a million ratings at IMDB, with a very impressive rating of 8.6. It was nominated for 4 Oscars and it was an absolute tragedy that it didn’t win even one.
3 Wonder (2017)
This is a beautiful movie that will leave you inspired and hopeful of a better world. ‘Auggie’ August Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) is a young boy with facial differences. Until now, his face has prevented him from studying in a mainstream school. But, the time has come to enroll in school, just like a regular kid. What seems like an enormously difficult challenge to fit into a difficult environment that is school transcends into a story of acceptance and compassion. Auggie’s remarkable journey doesn’t just inspire and propel himself, but the entire community as well.
Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts play Auggie’s compassionate parents, handholding him through his courageous journey. Julia Roberts is particularly impressive as a mother who gives her son the strength he needs to overcome.
4 The Color of Friendship (2000)
The Color of Friendship transcends through racism, giving way to beautiful compassion and kindness. A white girl from South Africa finds herself in a situation where she is chanced into a black host family in the USA. What initially seems to be a very awkward and uncertain endeavor evolves into a friendship for the ages.
If kindness, compassion and acceptance drive you as a person, you will smile your way through this movie. A small budget movie that delivers big on happiness!
5 Seven Pounds (2008)
Ben (Will Smith) is heavily weighed down by a dark secret. To ease his burden, he decides he must go to great lengths to help 7 strangers. Blinded by selflessness, he will stop at nothing to see his mission through. But, when one of the strangers he helps falls in love with him, can she change his vow to sacrifice it all. Rosario Dawson plays Emily, Ben’s love interest.
Seven Pounds is brought to you by the same Director who brought you Pursuit of Happyness. What is Ben’s unspeakable secret? Does his kindness come at a dear cost? The movie does a fantastic job of making a thriller out of unlikely emotions in kindness and compassion.
But, after The Girl Who Believes in Miracles, you might find Seven Pounds a bit morose and slow moving. But, the underlying theme of hope and inspiration is surely there and that’s why we have it on this list.
6 Big Hero 6 (2014)
Big Hero 6, with almost half a million votes at IMDB with an average rating of 7.8 is an animated movie. While there are many animated movies that preach kindness and empathy, we wanted to pick this one because it is also very funny. Hiro Hamada is an inventing prodigy. He builds a plus-sized inflatable robot called Baymax. Baymax’s only purpose is to heal.
But, when the city of San Fransokyo (we know that made you giggle) is under attack by a super villain, how will Baymax use his healing power to end evil? There are some really hilarious scenes in this movie. Baymax’s large and unsightly shape makes for many laugh out loud moments, some of which will leave you in splits or some tears in your eyes.
Just like in The Girl Who Believes In Miracles, Baymax will leave you feeling full of hope. This is a particularly great movie to watch with your kids who will fall in love with the clumsy but irresistibly adorable balloon like figure in Baymax.
