Times like these, you have to seek comfort wherever you can find it. I often look to movies for some extra degree of solace, and it seems that sometimes it can be found in the unlikeliest of places.

It is in this spirit that I recommend not one but three films this week, all of which in their own distinct and sometimes subtle ways make the viewer feel just a tad bit better about the world we live in. They do not achieve this effect via any conventional means (e.g. “heart-warming” stories, pat characterizations, emotional manipulation, etc.), but rather by adhering to a set of social ethics and doing their small part to better society.
