Episode #30: Classic Films You Can’t Let Your Teens Leave Home without Watching

Did you know classic films are an essential part of any student's high school and college education?

The movies of any period or of our society tell us a lot about the world, its beliefs, and can have the same power that books have to inspire and challenge us. In this episode I share some of my very favorite films, the ones you don't want to let your teens leave home without watching.

I hope this episode inspires special times together, eating freshly popped popcorn, and watching these classic films!
