Motivating Motion Pictures

Motivating Motion Pictures

Like other forms of storytelling, movies have the power to educate and inspire just as much as they entertain. A steady diet of inspiring movies can help stir your inner daring, inspire your sense of adventure, or ignite the fires of success and keep them burning. Add the following three real-life-inspired motivating motion pictures to your 2018 must-watch list.

The Finest Hours. In the winter of 1952, an oil-tanker got caught in one of the worst storms in the history of New England. Ill-equipped to withstand the brutal beating from a freezing sea, the ship split in half leaving crew members trapped and helpless. What followed is still regarded as one of the most valiant sea rescues of the U.S. Coast Guard. "The Finest Hours" will remind you of the importance of teamwork and determination. Starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck, stream it on Netflix and Amazon Video*, or sail away with the best-selling book of the same name.

Notable quote: "In the Coast Guard, they say you gotta go out. But they don't say you gotta come back in."

Queen of Katwe. When Phiona Mutesi, an impoverished Ugandan girl, discovers her fascination and facility for chess, her personal transformation begins. Through years of dedicated effort and competitive success, Mutesi is eventually recognized as Woman Candidate Master after being her country's junior and national champion. This movie may inspire you to discover your own hidden talents. Starring Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo, stream it on Netflix and Amazon Video*, or let the best-selling book by author Tim Crothers capture your heart.

Notable quote: "Sometimes the place you are used to is not the place where you belong."

Eddie the Eagle. Michael "Eddie" Edwards dreamed of going to the Olympics ever since he was a child. After he narrowly missed being selected for Great Britain's ski team in 1984, he switched from downhill skiing to ski jumping. He was 20 pounds heavier than his nearest competitor and had to pay for training out of his own pocket using borrowed equipment. Despite these odds, the tenacious Brit would eventually represent his country in the 1988 Winter Olympic Games and end up charming the entire world with his determined spirit. Starring Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman and Christopher Walken, stream or purchase through Amazon Video*, or read the official autobiography on Kindle.

Notable quote: "For as long as I can remember it has been my ambition to become an Olympian. I just needed to find the right sport."
