15 Inspiring Movies That Make You Want To Make a Change

1) The Pursuit of Happiness

Will Smith will absolutely blow your mind with his performance. Watch and be immersed by the story of Chris Gardner as he struggled with homelessness, taking care of his son and getting through going broke in his life.

I watch this regularly as it honestly gives me the boost I need to continue working hard despite things seemingly looking completely hopeless.

 2) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Okay I know Ben Stiller gets a bad rap from time to time, but I honestly think he’s really good in this movie. Watch how an unsatisfied Walter deal leaving his job and going on an adventure on his own. Literally.

It may not that deep, but I think it perfectly sprinkles a dash of light-heartedness into the inspiring mix.

3) Dallas Buyers Club

To me, Matthew McConaughey, portraying Ron Woodroof shows the human side of a person leading a decadent lifestyle. Struck with aids, he went from selling drugs for profit to helping a whole community of people dying from the disease. Goes to show what can do when he is struck with something bad.

Matthew’s performance really deserved the Oscar.

4) Forrest Gump

Though fictitious, I see Forrest Gump as an inspiring character who teaches people to lead a life by doing all sorts of things as you only have one shot. Tom Hanks brilliantly mixes it up as his character went to war, fell in love, got his heart broken (several times), played ping pong and ran on foot for over a year.

And you know what? People say Forrest is slow, and dumb. I say he knows how to block out the noise from the world and do whatever he wants.

5) 50/50

Joseph Gordon Levitt and Seth Rogan! But nah. This isn’t some typical bromance film.

Levitt plays Adam Lerner, a young dude who got struck with cancer. Watch how he has to deal with it with his best friend who seems to only want to use him to pick up girls, a horrible girlfriend who picks him up late for chemo and the good friends he made at chemotherapy sessions.

I think it’s inspiring because you get to watch how different people react to cancer. You’ll know who truly belongs in your life.

 6) The Blind Side

Homeless black teen can’t get a hold of his life together until two white folks take him in. Sandra Bullock’s character brilliantly shows how a strong support can make or break a person’s life.

 7) Patch Adams

I personally went on a Robin Williams movie marathon after he died. This movie stood out.

Patch Adams plays a disgruntled doctor who was sick of the system. He went out of his way to help people in need. One person can truly make big changes if he wants to.

8) Good Will Hunting

Matt Damon plays Will Hunting, who is a genius, but totally screwed up inside. Basically, he has issues. He pushes people away and that is thwarting him from reaching his full potential.

I find this inspiring because it shows how we all have problems and that we all suffer from our own issues. But with a little help, we can go a long way.

Indeed. We’re only human. So that’s alright. Yet, push yourself and go for what you want. Oh and Robin Williams plays the therapist who manages to get through to Will.

 9) The Monuments Men

You can wipe out an entire generation, you can burn their homes to the ground and somehow they’ll still find their way back. But if you destroy their history, you destroy their achievements and it’s as if they never existed. That’s what Hitler wants and that’s exactly what we are fighting for.

– Frank Stokes, played by George Clooney

This quote alone made the movie. We all chase and want the same superficial things in life. Not many stop to think and APPRECIATE the finer things in life.

It’s inspiring to know that some people would go out to fight for that.

 10) District 9

Okay maybe this isn’t exactly your conventional inspiring movie, but I decided to include it because it’s one of my all-time favourites.

What’s it about? Aliens. They landed on Earth and share the land with us. Humans and aliens try to coexist. Yet, the humans are the bad guys here.

Why is it inspiring? Because it makes you think. If you find yourself being the bad guy one day, perhaps it’s time to take steps to make a change. Not all outside forces are there to invade your life.

Plus, the ending is pretty touching.

 11) 3 Idiots

People call these three friends idiots. But they go all the way to do what they want and achieve their dreams.

I don’t think many people have heard of this movie. It’s a must watch. It makes you think about the way education is given to kids today too.

 12) The Impossible

Love your family. Cherish life. Need I say more?

13) 42

The story of Jackie Robinson, the first black player in Major League Baseball. Watch out he overcomes the odds.

14) Fight Club

This film is way deeper than one may think. Tyler Durden, Brad Pitt’s character inspires his friend, an unnamed character played by Edward Norton to stop conforming and live beyond his job and possessions.

“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.” -Tyler

One of the best quotes in the movie. Keep watching it over and over and you’d have something new to take away. Oh and if it’s your first time, be prepared to be blown away by the twist.

15) Yes Man

Another unconventional inspiring film!

Funny and quirky, Jim Carrey’s character says yes to everything inside, literally.

Perhaps in your life, you should open up, stop doing the same old boring things and grab opportunities before time runs out.
