feel-good films to watch when you’re depressed, lonely, or have a general feeling of worthlessness

unfortunately, we’ve all been there. whether you had a bad day at work/school, a falling out with someone you care deeply for, recovering from a relapse and everything in between, hopefully this list can help you find just what you need to get out of a funk. and of course, suggestions are always welcome! <3 

p.s: all suggestions are subjective! what qualifies as a feel-good film for others may not inspire the same reaction in you! and that’s okay! this list was conceived with the intention of allowing everyone the space to have their opinions heard, regardless of how audacious or unpopular. 

p.p.s: La La Land is never getting removed from the list so don’t even suggest it >:(
