Now, voyager (1942)

Grown-up, well-meaning people thinking things over and acting both decent and responsible – how’s that in a movie for a change? Well-crafted, unusual romantic melodrama about confidence and sacrifice. The unique, slightly strange looks and acting of Bette Davis is hypnotizing as usual.

Notions of what constitutes sensible psychology and a reasonable worldview may be way off according to modern standards, but the movie still manages to be saddening and uplifting at the same time. In my book.
