(Some of this is that my grandmother helped raise me, and she died a couple of years back, and now I cry at grandmother-grandchild bonds in films, which are rare enough. Some of it... is it was just that powerful.)

I have cried at grandmother-grandchild bonds since even before my grandmother died twenty years ago (oh, God, how is it twenty years: the last movie I saw with her in a theater was Fly Away Home (1996) and it was a dead mother in that story, not a grandmother, but Mary Chapin Carpenter sang "Ten Thousand Miles" like the ghost of the protagonist's mother staying with her every mile between Ontario and North Carolina and I started crying anyway, because she had been out of breath just walking the block from the car to the theater and I knew something then even if I didn't want to), but this was a very strong one.
