Courage. It is a quality that many admire, but one that can be dangerous for one's well-being or safety. Too often today we see people buckling under pressure and recanting ideas rather than face opposition. Two movies offer beautiful examples of characters making the right decision and courageously facing whatever outcome will happen.

A similar selfless courage is found in (of all places) the 1991 animated movie Beauty and the Beast. In the movie, a self-centered prince is turned into a beast as punishment. Unless he can learn to love and be loved in return before his enchanted rose dies, he will remain a beast. Beast falls in love with a girl he imprisoned named Belle, and she begins to see the change in him from selfish to caring. But at the same time, she desperately wants to see her father again.
