To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
At this point kind of corny, but still an undisputed classic thanks in large part to Gregory Peck’s ability to make Atticus Finch into a brave, rock-solid father figure we can all look up to.

LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY (2001-2003)
It’s a dangerous business stepping out your door, Bilbo tells Frodo, since you never know where you may end up. The road is a crucible of character for dreamy Frodo (Elijah Wood) and timid Sam (Sean Astin), forging them into heroes capable of courageous acts they never dreamed they could accomplish. Bonus points for making the entire journey barefoot.
