3. The Green Mile
Tom Hanks did a phenomenal job with this film, as I'm sure a lot of people know. Who hasn't seen this movie? I bet most have.

Although my explanation of the movie doesn't do it justice in being a sad movie, it's one those movies that you just have to watch to see what I mean.

7. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
There are just no words... Every time I watch this movie OR even see it as I'm scrolling through Netflix, I get so sad. So so so so so so so so so sad.
