Films I Turn To For Comfort

A lot of my favourite movies are depressing in nature or theme, or deal with topics not considered uplifting. But there are a good few films I love that are comforting, that no matter what their theme or style, I can turn to to be comforted, or to rest in their arms for 90-180 minutes. What are some of yours?
