Dunkirk - directed by Christopher Nolan - depicts the tragic, heroic World War II event when Nazi Germany surrounded Allied forces on Dunkirk Beach in northern France in late May 1940. Everyday heroes came to the rescue at extreme risk . This is a powerful historic movie for teens and adults. Parents and guardians should be aware that the violence is realistic and intense although little blood is shown. However, as one parent on Common Sense Media says, "This is not a war movie, but a movie about the goodness of people's hearts - in every aspect. War is the backdrop". The film was nominated for eight academy awards and won three.

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film is based on S.E. Hinton’s classic and compelling novel The Outsiders. Set in 1950s Tulsa, Oklahoma, the story follows Ponyboy and his friends, 'the Greasers' who are looked down on by the "Soc's" or Socials, rich kids from the sweet side of the tracks. Ponyboy likes 'Soc' Cherry (a bit of an outsider herself) but it seems hopeless -- the lines are drawn -- and then he gets into bad trouble. There are moments of humor, callousness, cruelty, heroism and humanity, heartfelt drama in a challenging story that still rings true.
