Great Films for Writers

I teach literature and creative writing in my after-school classes, to high school students. One thing that they really enjoy is good films; films with substance. All of the following films have a protagonist who writes, or include writing as a major theme. My current repertoire includes:

The Kite Runner
Finding Forrester
Stranger Than Fiction
Freedom Writers
The Life of Pi

You can do all the same kinds of writing activities with films as you can with books.
