Last week I rented the movie “Brian’s Song” to watch with my boys. As a child I remember watching the show on television and being powerfully moved by the movie.

I posted on Facebook that we were watching this classic movie and asked for other classic movies or TV series that are great to share with our kids.

Wow! I got a great response to that simple question. So today I’m sharing the suggestions with you so that you and I have a list to consult when we’re standing at the video store wondering what movie could possibly be good for the whole family to watch!
