City of Angels (1998)

Seth is an angel who watches over Los Angeles with his friend Cassiel, who's also an angel. They watch the sun rise and sit on the signs above the highway. One day when looking around at patients in the hospital Seth sees Maggie, a beautiful heart surgeon and instantly falls in love with her. When she meets him for the first time, she becomes curious and intrigued by him. She starts to realize that Seth is not like anyone she's ever met before. And when she finds out he's an angel she doesn't believe it. When Seth meets Messinger, who is one of the patients at the hospital, Messinger can see him because he was once an Angel but gave his power up to become human. So that makes Seth want to be human too so he can love and feel Maggie, but he would have to give up being an angel and fall to Earth. A beautiful and touching story; comical at times but also heartbreaking as well. Starring Nicolas Cage, Meg Ryan, Andre Braugher, Dennis Franz, Colm Feore 7/10
