Others inspire you by letting you know that it's not the end of the world and things really will get better. During that period of healing where you just want to curl up in your favourite pyjamas with a carton of your favourite ice cream, you need something that makes you laugh or cry or rage. To get you started, here are some of the best movies to watch after a breakup.
