"The Hedgehog" (2009). Paloma is a serious and highly articulate but deeply bored 11-year-old who has decided to kill herself on her 12th birthday. She becomes friends with a Japanese man who is her neighbor, and the building concierge. I don't want to say any more about this very engaging and quite wonderful French movie.
Inherit the Wind (1960) Based on a real-life case in 1925, two great lawyers argue the case for and against a science teacher accused of the crime of teaching evolution.

Lean on Me (1989): My Educational Psychology instructor at UNCW had our class watch several "teacher" movies and analyze the pedagogy evidenced in the film. (Yes, we had to write a paper on it!) This was a class favorite, along with Stand and Deliver (1988) and Dangerous Minds (1995). Freedom Writers (2007) would be a great addition to the exceptional-educator example canon! ~M
