Top 10 Motivational Movies for Students

Movies can be powerful motivators when we feel identified with what they are about. Watching a movie can inspire you and fill you with the motivation to do something or be the person that you want to be. This can be seen as a hack, and like most mind hacks it can be triggered on-demand depending on the situation. With that purpose in mind, I compiled a list of some of the most inspirational movies for students out there. Check it out:

The Breakfast Club (1985)

The Breakfast Club is a critically acclaimed work, that emphasizes the fact that while seemingly different, we all can relate to each other in some way. It invites us to reach out and care for one another. A must watch for students in highly diverse communities.

The Blind Side (2009)

The student life is not easy, that’s why not everyone gets a college degree. Getting to and through college is something that takes resilience. The Blind Side does the job at presenting us with a true story from someone who didn’t have it easy at all, yet managed to obtain extraordinary success. This is spiritual food for the dedicated student.

I am Kalam (2010)

What probably makes I am Kalam so inspirational is the fact that it portrays something that we all can relate to: A child who, despite the limitations that reality imposes, does not refrain from dreaming big and sincerely.

The movie does a great job at reminding us how precious our most dear aspirations are, and you cannot watch it without ending up profoundly moved more sensible to the things that matter in life.

Freedom Writers (2007)

Next time you feel like you can’t write and that you need some college paper help, it could be useful to watch this one. It’s a movie that moves us to be empathetic and understanding of others, but also ourselves. It reminds us of our ability to do great things, just by being ourselves.

The History Boys (2009)

What I learned from reading reviews is that there is a lot of people out there who think school is all about getting the degree through any means necessary. But The History Boys reminds us of the value of education. If you liked the Dead Poets Society, then you will probably like this one too.

Educating Rita (1983)

Here is a gender-inclusive story about the motivations that an uneducated woman had, and that eventually led to being on a quest to change her life through education. An inspiring tale for both women and men alike.

The Social Network (2010)

The Social Network is a biographical and historical account of the story behind the foundation of Facebook and its creator Mark Zuckerberg.

This movie is good because it tries to be true to some of the aspects of the entrepreneur’s personality that not everyone is ready to agree with or find valuable. It’s a tale about authenticity and paying the price for being yourself, while also gathering the rewards.

Starter for 10 (2006)

Starter for 10 is a story of how a kid that comes from a working-class family is able to adapt after having been accepted in a University filled with rich people. Starter for 10 will surely provide inspiration and comfort to those who can relate to the main character’s story.

Stand and Deliver(1988)

This is a story about a group of students that are considered to be a lost cause. A tale about the value of education in human lives.

The Great Debaters (2007)

Directed and starred by Denzel Washington, The Great Debaters is the story of an American black teacher inspiring a group of students to form a debate team that ends up competing against Harvard among the social turmoil and rampant racism that took place during the Great Depression.
