I don't like to be emotionally manipulated and I don't go in for sentimentality or schmaltz so this scene from Shadowlands based upon the true story of the author C.S Lewis's love for American poet Joy Gresham is all the more poignant due to the lack of both.

I really feel that Anthony Hopkins is not even acting here, he is drawing on some tragedy in his past and letting it out on screen and director Richard Attenborough knows this and let's the scene unfold without any unnecessary background music or edits. Stunning scene and absolutely superb film that I really should watch again after a few years away.

In fact I have held back watching this clip until I have completed this post and happy with my wording as it holds even more power now than it did when I first saw it many years ago for obvious reasons.

This may be my favourite scene in any film. This movie has tons of great scenes though.

I haven't seen that movie since it was in theaters. I really need to watch it again.

Yes, that´s a very touching scene, jackhammer, with all the merits you mention. Your honesty has prompted me to come clean about one of my favourite movies, Brief Encounter, in which two respectably married people are tempted to be unfaithful to their spouses.
My clip has a heavy dose of schmaltz, I´m afraid, with Rachmaninov´s Piano Concerto helping the sentiment along, but in this movie director David Lean was actually pioneering some of today´s taken-for-granted, cynically exploited movie effects.

What I hope our clips have in common is the sympathetic way they show how the British often cope with strong emotion. So much is repressed, but in this clip Celia Johnson conveys plenty, even when working with lines as unpromising and dispassionate as "Yes, of course, steelworks." :-

For more drama set in mundane cafeterias, I just remembered this scene from Mike Leigh´s Secrets and Lies:-

Hortense is a young, adopted, black woman. Because of the recent death of her adoptive mother, she is now searching for her birth mother. By phone, she arranges to meet Cyththia Purley outside a London tube station. When they meet, Cynthia is confused, but trying to be helpful, she agrees to go for a cup of tea with Hortense to talk about her search ....

Spoiler for Brenda Blethyn´s finest hour:


I put the spoiler tags because it´s a key scene from the movie, and you may want to get yourself a handkerchief before you click to witness Brenda Blethyn´s performance.

Almost everyone has watched Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, so I don't feel the need to link to a video. But the scene before the battle where Padme says, "I truely, deeply love you, and before I die, I want you to know." to Anakin. And I can't believe I chose a romantic scene over an action scene, but I'm that way sometimes.
