Educating is a privilege, a kind of lottery that is exhausting as well as full of happiness, and in which all help is welcome.

Today we recommend 15 films that reflect moments in the lives of children and educators, all different, each with its charm and its teaching. You have to see them calmly and reflect, stay with the positive and learn from the negative. They are also great to watch with teenagers and, if possible, discuss them at the end.


  1. The indomitable Will Hunting (Good Will Hunting): A classic by Matt Damon and Robin Williams, which although it has been seen, allows a second review. It tells the story of a gifted boy with few resources who is discovered by a teacher, and is overwhelmed by the situation of improvement that takes him out of his comfort zone and avoids as best he can. An unconventional teacher will be in charge of talking to him.


  1. The Wild Children (Els Nens Salvatges): Raw and realistic film about three teenagers who share friendship and feeling misunderstood by their parents. Unexpected and interesting insight into the relationship of adults with children.


  1. Captain Fantastic (Captain Fantastic): Recent almost in theaters yet, inspiring story about a widowed father and educates her six children from society and nature. To see it without prejudice and enjoy it a lot.


  1. The club of dead poets (Dead poets society): Magical story in which a teacher encourages his students through poetry to pursue their dreams and never give up their freedom. Enough argument to see it and not forget it.


  1. The Wave (Die Welle): A teacher decides to experiment with his students so that they understand what fascism is and under what circumstances it develops. When he realizes it is too late. Most valuable as an observatory of human behavior.


  1. The language of the butterflies : The Spanish civil war ideologically separated brothers and neighbors. This is the moving story of a very special teacher in a very small town who is shaken by the hatred of warfare. Precious.


  1. Whiplash: Demanding to what extent? Where is the limit? With this fast-paced narrative about a drummer student and his teacher, you are sure to rethink the levels of demand. Rhythm in the music and in the script.
