Hang on, I like ST VI, but inspirational?
Same question for Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club.
I’ll explain. ST VI depicts overcoming prejudices that you’ve held your whole life in order to find common ground and help people that used to be your enemies. The Cold War metaphor is powerful and I find that inspirational. Also, Kirk’s character arc is basically overcoming racism. At the beginning he wished death on all Klingon’s and by the end realized how awful that was and became a hero. I’ve always really loved that movie and I think it’s the most intelligent of the ST films.
Pretty in Pink is a personal favorite. I was a poor kid in a rich school and was self-conscious about it. I guess inspirational may not quite be the most accurate word for this one, but I still feel inspired by it.
The Breakfast Club inspired me and still inspires me to empathize with people that are completely different than me.
