We enjoyed watching it though it made us shed into tears. Overall, Awakenings is an entertaining, yet poignant film that is eloquently laced with poetry and a beautiful score by Randy Newman. This is easily the most powerful tearjerker that I 've ever seen, thanks in large part to the brilliant performances by Williams and De Niro.

For me, the scenes with Miller proved to be the most emotional, but really, the whole film was heartwarming or heartbreaking on some level.

In the locker room I could barely hear myself think, with every possible yell and roar as if warriors were getting to head out to the battlefield as if they were about to go out to war. Only moments before was I putting on my gear from the color coded pants to the reinforced helmet to be ready to take on any heavy collision. As we wait for the coaches signal, the warriors wait in the dark hallway ready to be let loose against any dare to oppose and try to stand in our way. As we stood in silent aggression the signal is heard and one after the other as the door is opened every warrior touched the doorway as luck going into battle with not only skill but lady luck on our side.
