Every Friday when a movie is released, what compels us to book tickets for a particular film? I think majority of us go for entertainment or to just freshen up our minds but there are some movies, which inspires us to laugh, cry, to believe in ourselves or to live our life to the fullest and also pushes us to achieve our dreams. In this article, I am going to share my 10 favorite inspirational movies which are close to my heart and I am sure you’ll like them.
