We’ve got you wrapped with a comprehensive collection of sob-inducing films to match any weepy mood. The saddest Netflix streaming movie is listed here; just make sure you have access to tissues because these films will make even an incredibly reticent weeper sniffle.

Tick, Tick… BOOM!

Identifying a Tony Award winner TICK, TICK… BOOM!, directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is a remake of the departed Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical musical that he wrote before the hugely successful Rent. The musical, which stars Andrew Garfield as Larson, is a “rock monologue” that follows the up-and-coming composer from Manhattan as he attempts to stage a workshop for the musical he created called Superbia in the run-up to his 30th birthday. Larson barely makes ends meet working as a server at a downtown diner.

Susan, a dancer who has been given a job teaching dance in the Berkshires, attempts to persuade Larson to go there while he struggles to create the last song for the musical-within-a-musical. As friends grapple with HIV-positive diagnoses, Larson’s best buddy Michael urges him to think about having a day job creating jingles.
