YesLeena The Last Castle
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0272020/
This film seems interesting! Robert Redford, the star, is a court martialed general. Under his leadership, he apparently will be able to guide 1,200 inmates to stand up against corruption. It's hard enough to convince a handful of people, let alone over a thousand. It must take a great leader to execute this plan that requires the most obvious, leadership, but also conviction (no pun intended), respect and vision.

23
YesGaryCrimson TideThis movie shows leadership the essense of leadership. Leadership is not about doing things right, it's about doing the right thing, especially in the military. A young inexperienced naval officer goes up against a war proven naval captain. This movie is really about showing how as a leader, sometimes you may have to stand alone and against all odds.
24

Yesblake42http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453562/
This is a film about a coach who takes on the tuff job of high school basketball coach for a struggling group of young troubled individuals trapped in a low income neighborhood instilled with the beliefs of failure early in life. Coach carter sees more to life than just the game and makes it his personal mission to inspire and motivate these boys to turn there lives around and utilize basketball and their academics to escape their current lives and move on to college and much better things. I plan on connecting this by discussing his leadership traits,skills and the techniques he uses on these kids. I also plan on going in depth to express how they reacted to each strategy.

YesAlford Selmahttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1020072/
The movie I selected for this project is Selma. I chose this movie because it is about the Life of a very important political leader and racial activist leader. He helped to end segregation and brought a nation together to fight for 1 cause to end racial inequality in America. We have come very far since his death and because of his leadership we are still growing and developing in the area of racial relations. Although we are not all the way through with racism in America things are a lot better than they where. I wont to look at the life, and the legacy of a man who sacrificed much so that others could gain.
31
YesLeasaMcFarland USAhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt2097298/?ref_=nv_sr_1
The movie I selected for this project is McFarland USA. This movie is about a Coach who takes these young boys under his wings to lead them to victory in Cross Country. "Coach White and his new students find that they have much to learn about one another, but things begin to change when White realizes the boys' exceptional running ability. More than just physical prowess drives the teens to succeed; their strong family ties, incredible work ethic and commitment to their team all play a factor in forging these novice runners into champions." It's an inspiring story about Coach White finding the potential in his team, in how fast they run. It's also based off of a true story!
32
YesLauraRemember the Titanshttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0210945/?ref_=nv_sr_1The movie I selected for this project is Remember the Titans. This movie is about a coach who is new to the community. There are issues about racism but the movie shows the trials and tribulations that are faced as the two cultures come together.
