Because of Winn-Dixie - A Lonely Town
India "Opal" Buloni (played by Annasophia Robb) is a preacher's daughter whose life is surrounded by disappointment and heartbreak. She's grieving over the loss of her mother, who left her when she was only three years old, has a troubled relationship with her father, and finds it hard to fit in with the local kids, who've nicknamed her Baloney Breath. Everything changes when she adopts a stray dog and names him after the supermarket where she finds him. Together, they set off to bring some spice into their dull town.
Because of Winn-Dixie - The Magic of Friendship
Opal, who doesn't have any friends, realizes the townspeople are just as lonely as she is. With Winn-Dixie by her side, she begins to let go of her sadness and helps heal other peoples' pain, from Otis (played by singer Dave Matthews), an ex-convict, to Gloria Dump, a blind woman who everyone thinks is a witch. The special bond between Opal and her goofy dog helps heal her relationship with her dad and teaches everyone the meaning of friendship - and it all happens because of Winn-Dixie.

Omg, my friend lent me The Fault In Our Stars dvd and it was literally the best movie I have ever seen, I was a bit scared to watch it because I don't really like sad movies but it was just amazing and a sort of happy sad if you know what I mean like not happy but like i don't know just not depressing sad
