Ahh joys of primary school. I think this was to placate us little ones more than anything else. We certainly wouldn't have studied it.

Didn't study this one either... just a fun movie with your general classroom end-of-year junk food pandemonium.

If I recall correctly, this was the movie chosen to introduce us to film techniques and shot types. Now I can't stop watching the damn thing :P absolutely love it to bits.

Billy Elliot (2000)
First real movie study. How beautiful can it get? That stag leap at the end - phenomenal. Really didn't help my mild obsession with all things ballet at that particular point in time.

Our lovely English teacher was introducing to us her incredible admiration for Hayao Miyazaki. I was already familiar with the genius, but it was totally worth it to see the sceptics in my class be blown away by his awesomeness.

Another branch of the Studio Ghibli love, with some thematic ties to our novel study. Unfortunately, I think the material was too deep and the movie too long for aforementioned sceptics. Such a shame. For them.

Major tangent from our 'Mister Pip' novel study. Ouch. Didn't really enjoy so much - the class in general, having not read the book, found the male character pathetic and the female characters too manipulative.

The most heart-warming film to touch the recesses of our English notebooks filled with the cold, dark, cynical, bordering-on-sociopathic material that teachers like to dig up for us to psychoanalyse. Really. Just watch and fall in love with the characters. A wonderful, feel-good movie that gives you permission to scream with happiness at the top of your lungs!

Material slightly awkward for the classroom social scene, but this movie is truly beautiful. There is such profound feeling, and a lot of the themes were relate-able (which is occasionally a good thing). I could even go as far as to say that it probably changed my utterly cynical world view at that time.
It was also easy to dissect and craft essays from. Which is always a bonus.

Movies they got us to watch/study in school. A couple of gems that I wouldn't have watched otherwise, being the assimilated college student I am :P
