A friend of mine is a professor teaching a class, through films, that helps freshmen transition from high school to college. He takes elements that might become problems for students and uses films to discuss the challenges. For example, one problem is living up to your parents expectations rather than finding your own path. He shows Dead Poets Society to foster discussion.
He's asked my help in finding a film to carefully show the problems and solutions with drug use. It can be a movie that takes place in high school or college, but he's looking for something that's not too violent or sexual, but would foster discussion. There are only two I could think of off the top of my head: Loser and Charlie Bartlett. Any help or advice would be most welcome! Thanks.
