Not sure where to begin your exploration of the daily struggles and triumphs of college students? From melodrama and comedy to thriller and horror, movies involving college dorms and students can fall into any of these categories.
A few are household names, while others have slipped under the radar. You’ll find both well-known and obscure films about college students and modern youth in our collection.
Even when I had a lot of schoolwork, I would first finish my essay and then watch a movie. But it’s also critical to take a moment to relax. So, without further ado, let us begin.
1. Legally Blonde
“Blondie” is the best movie about students, and it should be at the top of the list. Elle Woods, a high school student, is having the time of her life. She’s gorgeous, well-liked at school, and adored by a slew of people.
He decides that she is too naive to commit to a long-term relationship with her. He tells her he’s seeking for a serious and intelligent girl before he walks away.
To keep Elle’s easygoing personality and glitzy interests in check, she enrolls in Harvard to study law.
2. Mona Lisa’s Smile
The story takes place in 1953 in the United States. There’s a new young instructor on campus who’s inspiring the kids right away with her radical stance on gender equality.
The new mentor is a big hit with the children, but the leadership isn’t quite right for them. However, the movie isn’t just about the impact of professors on students’ minds; a true drama plays out in the lives of the main character.
In “Gossip,” two college students and their girlfriend, both of whom are interested in journalism, conduct an experiment to see how quickly a rumor about one of their classmates spreads.
After a while, the gossip queen goes the police, her second accomplice is imprisoned, and the student journalists have no idea how to stop it all.
4. Dead Poets Society
Fans of university films and those who enjoy complex plots will both enjoy this film. Students at the top institution in the United States meet a new teacher who motivates them to make life-altering decisions.
It’s time for the students to reconstitute their literary club and get back to creating art. Academic difficulties and confrontations with parents and teachers drive the students to give up the life they had finally learned to handle on their own.
5. Party King
Van Wilder, a “forever” student who has been unable to graduate from college for six years because he is too content with the carefree life of a student, is the final film in our pick.
Students and student events are more important to him than the idea of a future career. He has to make a decision: either find a job so he can keep partying in college or finally finish his studies because his father no longer has the money to pay for his education.
Ryan Reynolds plays the title role in the film, which is based on Burt Crusher’s own writings.
The Faculty (not to be confused with the television series of the same name, which is also well worth watching) and “Homicide Vacation” are two must-sees for fans of horror, thrillers, and black comedies.
You don’t want to go directly to a serious movie after the young flicks about students. However, there are so many movies on college life that another year of daily screenings would be sufficient.
Remember “Ellen and the Guys,” “University,” “Daria,” and other popular television shows and cartoons.
Vampire Academies and the world’s most renowned school of witchcraft and magic are available in the fantasy genre after them. Watch and watch some more.
