I want to show my composition kids a movie on Thursday. They’re handing in their research papers and I really don’t have anything more planned for them for the semester, but we still have to meet for the class period, anyway¬† Do any of you have any suggestions on what a good film for a composition class would be?

I’m considering The Freedom Writers, or perhaps The Great Debaters.¬† I want it to be a film about finding one’s voice and showing the world what one is capable of, but I don’t want it to be overly preachy (or inaccessible – these aren’t exactly Rhodes Scholars we’re dealing with, here; they’d have little tolerance for something like The Dead Poets’ Society).

Gimme what you’ve got!
