22 of the Saddest Scenes in Movie History

It doesn’t matter whether you’re Mr. Glass levels of weak and fragile or glass happens to be one of your favorite foods, a movie has made you cry. You were a child once, and a bizarre number of children’s films inflict the kind of emotional devastation that would warrant CPS involvement if you just described it to a child. Or maybe you’re partial to Oscar bait — a film that spins a roulette wheel to fulfill a cinematic combination of deathdespair and atrocity.

Only a trusted therapist or honest-to-goodness harvester of sorrow would ask you to relive such cinematic agony, so Redditor CallyB0225 must be collecting internet tears. They asked r/AskReddit, “What is the saddest movie scene ever?” and Reddit recalled its childhood trauma, adult heartbreak and one very infamous bee allergy.
