Could any one recommend films for a campus film series highlighting upward
mobility narratives, especially those in which a working-class character
attends college (e.g., Good Will Hunting, Educating Rita)?  We're looking
for films about "scholarship boys" and girls, literacy acquisition, moving
to the metropolitan center, that treat personal and cultural conflicts
arising through upward mobility in interesting ways.

Thank you,
