- Monsters University
This is the prequel to the first movie about Mike and Sally.

- The Great Debaters
The soul-saving drama of Denzel Washington staged in the scenery of the American depression and lynching. Washington played the main role of a brave instructor in the traditionally African-American college “Wylie” in Texas, recruiting participants in the debate club. “The Great Debaters” are based on the life of Professor Melvin Tolson, who taught oratory and skill in conducting discussions in the 1930s. His team, consisting exclusively of African-American students, won at national competitions for the first time, surpassing the permanent leader, Harvard University in the film adaptation and the University of South Carolina in real life. “The Great Debaters " remind of the strength of the spoken word.
- Damsels in Distress
Violet Whistler sees the problems of her fellow students and cannot leave them with their troubles. Representations of help from her, however, are specific, on the other hand – if they were ordinary, people would not see Greta Gerwig in the main role. In his free time, Violet directs the center of the fight against depression, where she is teaching tapping and maintaining personal hygiene; takes care of a brand new and strongly advises to meet with less successful men – to maintain their self-esteem. All people try to love each other very much and to conflict solely on ideological issues, intermingling romantic hobbies with the fulfillment of the mission to turn the masculine campus into a civilized place of study.
- Dear White People
The film "Dear white people" starts a conversation about racial discrimination and stereotypes. Sam White represents the "white" part of the college that struggle to avoid the African-American students. With his help, the director answers questions that intrigue the modern pop culture. At the same time, he tries to find out where, in the final analysis, political correctness ends and counter-racism begins – as both sides of the conflict in the traditional University of the Ivy League go too far. Asking uncomfortable questions, the director starts from the modern political and cultural context, trying to find out the norms of respectful behavior towards each other. "Dear White People" proved to be a mark and a timely satire on racial discrimination in the modern world.
- Legally Blonde
If you have a bad mood, you should definitely watch this picture. It is very kind and even a fairy-tale comedy that motivates the viewer, and makes one believe in his or her own strength. The thoughtful plot, light music, and great jokes – that is the main feature of this picture, but the unbeatable game of Reese Witherspoon will not leave anyone indifferent: neither critics (Reese claimed the Golden Globe in the nomination for the best female role) nor ordinary viewers. The film was an applicant for the Golden Globe in the nomination "The best comedy," and this fact speaks volume.
The “Legally Blonde” is not just a comedy, but also a film that also touches the topic of stereotyping people's thinking, because no one believes that a glamorous blonde girl in a pink dress can become a good lawyer. The movie is mandatory for viewing for everyone who wants to overcome depression, to believe in his or her own strength, and just to have a lot of fun.
Watching these films will be a great opportunity to relax for you. They will help you forget about everyday routine and study as well as will give a lot of positive emotions.
