"Life is Beautiful" is perfect. It's in Italian, but it's soooo worth the struggle of understanding through subtitles. My mind must be stuck on foreign films, but I also think you would like "Water" (it's in Hindi). Dr. Dillion shows it in a lot of her classes.

This just in from a friend:

Put me down with votes for Citizen Kane and Green Mile. AND add -- can't believe it isn't there already -- Shawshank Redemption.
