But on the other hand, there are tales of bravado and valor in films like ‘Saving Private Ryan’, which arouse patriotism and joy in our hearts. With that said, here is the list of top inspirational movies based on true stories. You can find several of these movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime. These movies will inspire and motivate you to do good in life.
