As part of a research project I'm interested in--I'm looking for
suggestions for movies to investigate.  Briefly: I'm looking for films
where characters of an "upper-class" (broadly defined: economic, social
etc) are "moralized, "emotionally healed," shown a "better" life
perspective, etc. by characters of a "lower-class" (again broadly defined).
Further I'm primarily interested in mainstream contemporary Hollywood
cinema (made since about 1977 or so) that fit this very broadly defined
category.  Some examples are:
White Palace, Titanic, Pretty Woman, & Passion Fish
I realize that matters of race & gender will often be important to these
films also.
Any help with movie & research suggestions is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
