'Forrest Gump' Voted Most All-Round Emotional Film Of All Time By Odeon Cinema-Goers

What film do you immediately think of as being the most all-round emotional one you've ever seen?

Odeon Cinema polled 2,000 British film fans to vote for films that took them on a rollercoaster of joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger - the emotions and feelings central to Pixar's latest blockbuster 'Inside Out'.

One film was voted as containing the most of all five feelings, and that was 'Forrest Gump', Tom Hanks' 1994 Oscar-winning tale of a simple man travelling through his life, one adventure at a time. The same film was voted the most 'feel-good' film in cinema-goers' minds.

Personality and Behaviour Psychologist Donna Dawson explained why we love receiving multiple emotions during a trip to the cinema. She said: "The reason that we love to experience many different emotions in a short space of time as in a film, is because it allows us to 'feel' and appreciate each separate emotion more clearly and sharply through the contrast with other emotions. Cinema defies the concept of time, as it allows us to live a lifetime of emotional experience in a few hours."
