Our Town

I might be cheating by putting a play on this list, but so what—it’s the best one of the 20th century (okay, let the arguments begin); and it bears endless revisits. The juxtaposition of a thoroughly home-spun premise of two families at the turn of the century eventually evolves into a stunning and groundbreaking example of what it means to understand the value of life while you’re living it. Have tissues at the ready.
