From romantic classics to inspiring biopics, here’s our list of movies that are sure to have you reaching for the tissues.

October marks Black History Month in the United Kingdom and to celebrate this year, Netflix has curated a special collection of films and TV shows that acknowledge the Black British experience. Called Black British Stories, the series honours ‘Black British voices behind and in front of the screen, characters old and new, and stories that have influenced an industry.’
