What are some movies containing speeches about resilience?

Asked by Kokoro (1419points) February 9th, 2011

I need your help! I need to complete this by this weekend—movie a montage of speeches from movies that discuss resilience. Sports seem to be popular, but anything will do

Please define “resilience” for me. And, is this a school assignment?

This song, Pick Yourself Up from the movie Swing Time is the very definition of resilience.

Not sure if this counts, but in ‘Braveheart’ there was a speech along the lines of “we’re not gonna take it anymore!” “They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!!!!!”

In the movie Invictus, the Mandela character quotes the Poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley. A definite resilience theme.

This scene from Gone With The Wind

This scene from a Wonderful Life might work.
