The Pursuit of Happyness

This movie stars real-life father and son tandem of Will Smith and Jaden Smith. The movie is about Chris Gardner who is already at the lowest point of his life. This means that his wife just left him with his son, they have no place to live, no money and no job. He is struggling to make ends meet and to lead a better life for his son. The story will teach you all about believing in a dream and never giving up on it.

The Truman Show

The Truman Show is a personal favorite off this list. The story revolves around Truman Burbank who grew up being the star of his own television show, as the title suggests, but he has no idea about it. Since everything around him is just for a show, all the elements in his life are fake which includes his wife, his parents, his best friend and more. The movie gets really interesting when Truman finally finds out about this and struggles to leave the set.

The Shawshank Redemption

Last but definitely not the least is this movie about Andy Dusfrene who was falsely accused of murder and when to prison for it. He struggled to adapt to his new life in prison all while proving that he should not be there in the first place. The movie teaches you that even in the darkest points of your life, you must remain hopeful in order to get through it.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

This movie centers on Jim Carrey and his character wanting to erase the memories of someone he loves. He hires a team of experts who can alter the memories on his brand and literally remove Clementine played by Kate Winslet from his mind. This movie will teach you about heartbreak and that some people will definitely go to extreme lengths just to forget the past and all the hurt that they have been suffering from.

Call Me By Your Name

A coming of age film set in a small city in France. The film will follow the life of a young boy Elio who will discover his true self and identity as the story progresses. He will fall in love with this father’s research assistant they will begin a love story one for the books. One great thing about this film is that it is not all about Elio fighting the societal norms as someone who just found out that he is gay. It is not about being disowned by parents for being gay. It is just purely about a love story that so pure and innocent.
