The all-time greatest happy endings in films

There's no joy quite as visceral as crying tears of happiness over your favourite film ending, glass of white wine in one hand and a clutch of tissues in the other. If you haven't tried it yet, we highly recommend it; it's wonderful, cathartic stuff.

In fact, the mere mention of certain scenes - "Daddy, my daddy!" from The Railway Children, or "I love you, Molly. I've always loved you" from Ghost - are enough to make certain Stylist staffers well up with the sheer emotion of it all.

No matter if we've watched them a gazillion times before, these film finales are guaranteed to give us goosebumps and re-watching them brings all the delicious anticipation and promise of being wrapped up in the moment with a good old feel-good weep.

Behold our pick of the greatest, most tear-inducing end scenes from movie history, from Babe to Shawshank Redemption and E.T.

Warning: Multiple spoilers alert! Don't read on if you don't want to find out how these films end
