'It wasn't even the brutality of it all. What did it for me was when Chiwetel Ejiofor finally saw his family and his kids were all grown up. The thought of missing so much of your children's lives broke me. I've never seen so many guys cry in such a concentrated area. I cried again outside the cinema.'

'Pixar are absolute geniuses and know my heart better than I know it myself. When Bing Bong sacrifices himself, it's basically Jack letting go of the raft in 'Titanic' all over again. I've seen it twice and I cried in the cinema both times!'

'I couldnít stop the tears. The subject matter, cancer and love, got to me and I'm a sucker for a romantic film. There are some great lines in the movie: "I fell in love with him the way you fall asleep, slowly, and then all at once." This line resonates with me ñ I fell in love the same way.'

'I recently saw Amy Winehouse documentary 'Amy' at Whirled, an independent members' cinema in Brixton; to my surprise it made me very emotional. It was hard watching the troubled life of someone so talented and so deeply missed. Her music was truly unique.'
Amanda Pauley, 26, journalist
'Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall play father and son in a frank and intimate portrayal of a strained parent/child relationship. The trailers made it look quite cheerful, but my God, the ending was heartbreaking – I could really relate to it. I walked away feeling emotionally wrecked. If youíre going to watch this, watch it with chocolate.'
