Sling Blade (deals with issues of mental handicaps & homosexuality)

A Time to Kill (racism)

...just thought of Billy Elliot (homophobia...although it might be a stretch)

What about Schindler's List? Amistad?

I don't know exactly what the administration's standards are, but Boys Don't Cry. Definitely graphic, but a must see movie, especially for younger people, I think.

and it certainly was antonio banderas

Well, before I even finished reading your post skeek, "Ghandi" came through my mind.

Schindler's List isn't something I would necessarily use in this situation. While it is a good movie (and apparently administration acceptable, as I watched it in my senior year sociology course), I think there are other movies available that are more pliable to more mesages of the organization.

American History X is a fabulous film, but I think short of Hell freezing over three times, it will never be shown in a high school.

Overall, I think either Philadelphia or Ghandi would give messages that are applicable to the association. But my strong suggestion would be Ghandi, because I love it so much.

"If These Walls Could Talk (Part 2)" is a great HBO film that depicts the struggles of lesbians in different time periods and in three vignettes, the best of which is the first one starring Vanessa Redgrave as a woman who loses her partner of 30 years in the 1960's. Her performance is very, very moving. The second one stars Chloe Sevigny as a beautiful butch lesbian who is judged by the more feminine lesbians, and the third (and weakest of the three) stars Ellen DeGeneres and Sharon Stone trying to get pregnant.

Boys Don't Cry, Philadelphia and To Kill a Mockingbird are also great choices.
