Help me think of a movie..

At my school I am in the Equity Committee which raises awareness and money to be donated to oranizations that raise awareness for things such as gay rights, women's rights, anti-racism... basically all anti-descriminatory stuff.

We are having a movie night to promote ourselves and we need to think of a movie that we could show that would be hopefully appealing to the masses, and also have a good social message that goes along with what we do in our club, it should also be the sort of thing that could be shown in a school without too much fussing from the administration.

The first thought was American History X... however this is probably a little to graphic and brutal to show to the school.. unfortunately since it is an incredible movie and exactly the mix of mainstream appeal/message that we'd be looking for.

The other movie that's been mentioned is Gandhi.. could work.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Please?

I asked for advice.

My friend tells me Philadelphia. With Tom Cruise and Antonio Banderas.

And also Ghandi

I believe those are great choices

On a side note: Did you knew I was born on the same date as Ghandi? Yeah I know: Like you care

American History X was my first thought too, but... curb scene... shower scene... probably not real good for school.

Gandhi definitely could work. Also try Life Is Beautiful. Even Remember The Titans (about a high school football team dealing with forced integration) could be a good choice.

You mean Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington?

I was going to suggest Philidelphia also, but I think your friend is confused, this has Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington....

Tom Cruise and Antonio were in Interview With a Vampire together...which could also be used some anti-homophobic movie if you want to stretch it lol

John Singleton's Higher Learning (1995).

It's ok, coming from the director of Boyz N the Hood... It covers a lot of stuff in a college environment... and it was shot at UCLA.

I commend your cause. "Philadelphia" for gay rights issues. Hands down. In fact, I just saw it....how sad it always makes me....
