Best Drama Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption

The most beautiful and touching movie ever. Deserves to be my third favorite movie ever.

This is the best movie ever made. Perfect on every level

Pretty underrated list, 6 years and 100 votes. - zxm

My favorite movie. So much injustice and justice at the same time. so much sadness ad joy, as well. Beautifully scripted and so well acted. - Pfeifferpfan

2 Forrest Gump
3 Schindler's List

A brilliant, dramatic, intense yet hopeful film, Schindler's List is a masterpiece. It takes nothing less than sheer brilliance to give the horrors of the Holocaust justice in a format such as filming, but Schindler's List does so incredibly. It shows us how the horrors of the past, with a hopeful message of the future that good will prevail over evil and puts us through 3 and a bit hours of intense, brutal drama to do so.
