In 2006, the American Film Institute released a list of the 100 most inspiring American movies: AFI’s 100 Years…100 Cheers. It’s an interesting list that definitively answers the question, does a movie need to be sentimental to be inspiring? Looking over the broad range of genres present in this list, the answer is a definite no. Moviegoers can find inspiration in films that invite them to open themselves to love, stand up for what they believe is right, fight the good fight, and rediscover the innocence of childhood. Even superhero movies, like the recently released Captain America: The Winter Soldier, encourage audiences to aspire to be greater.
