The loveliness is drawing our attention to some of the struggles we face and to some of the things we really want but finding it so hard to get
reconciliation, forgiveness, tenderness, an end to the fighting, a chance to say sorry.
We start to cry at a brief vision of state of grace from which we exiled most of the time.
We ache for all the lost innocence of the world.
Loveliness and goodness can make the actual ugliness of our existence all the more vivid.
That's also why, if we would consider the unusual project of creating a robot that could cry at the movies, we would have to do something apparently rather cruel.
We would have to ensure that this robot knew all about suffering, for it's only against the background of pain,
the beautiful scenes in films become deeply moving rather than merely nice.
Our tears are telling us something key, that our lives are tougher than they used to be when we were little,
and that our longing for uncomplicated niceness and goodness is correspondingly all the more intense.
But when Johnny leaves her at the end...-No, I know, it's a very inspiring movie.
If you tell anyone I'll kill you.
Yeah, understood, yeah, I understand.
