Everybody on a film set from actors to production assistants has a role to play and the director is often the only person who has the vision to lead the whole process.
A good leader focuses on what they can do and empowers others to find their own solutions. This is demonstrated by Al Pacino’s character in Any Given Sunday, where he tells his NFL team that he can teach them tactics and organise them on the field, but it is up to them to win.
1. Cool Runnings
Cool Runnings is a Disney movie that is loosely based on the true story of Jamaica’s first bobsled team. It tells the story of Derice Bannock (Leon) who aspires to make it to the Olympics.
However, during a try-out race Junior Bevil trips and brings him down along with Yul Brenner (no, not that one). This devastates Derice’s hopes of making the team.
In an effort to overcome this obstacle, he decides to compete in a different sport. This leads to him finding a way to become part of the Jamaican bobsled team in 1988 Calgary Olympic Games.
Cool Runnings is an inspirational film that demonstrates the importance of persistence and hard work. It also teaches us that the underdog can win in the end.
2. The Intern
If you want a feel-good movie that will make you laugh, cry, or think about the people around you, you can do no better than The Intern. It stars Robert De Niro as a 70-year-old retired widower who applies to a senior intern program because he can’t stand to be bored and wants to stay active.
He becomes a senior intern at a fast-growing fashion e-commerce company run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). She’s a young, ambitious woman who’s juggling motherhood, a marriage, and running a company that’s beholden to venture capitalists who want her to hire a more experienced CEO.
Ben quickly distinguishes himself from other interns by his congeniality, little acts of kindness, and the way he helps the young employees at About the Fit grow their careers. He also teaches Jules about the importance of value creation, which is about delivering unexpected results and going above and beyond the expectations of your job description.
Thirty-one years ago, a movie called Glory hit the theaters. The film centered on the story of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, the first all-Black regiment raised in the United States.
The film’s success was largely due to the fact that it was the first feature film about the Civil War to focus on black soldiers. It also drew attention to the discrimination that these men faced during the conflict.
As a result, it became a stalwart in many high school history classes. It also helped correct the distorted and romanticized images of black soldiers in previous blockbuster movies like Birth of a Nation (1915) and Gone with the Wind.
4. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is a film that tells the story of Nelson Mandela. It shows his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years spent in prison.
Mandela was an anti-racist and fought against apartheid in South Africa. He also believed that there should be unity between people from different races.
While he was fighting against the apartheid regime, he also taught white people that they needed to help in order to win against this system. He believed that the oppressors must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed.
This movie is an amazing story of one of the greatest leaders in history. It is a must see for everyone. It shows how leadership is an important thing in life. It is a great lesson for all ages. It will make you feel good about yourself and others.
5. The Salesman
Asghar Farhadi’s latest film is a powerful, moving and surprisingly relevant piece of work. It is one of those films you will likely revisit again and again over the years.
The Salesman focuses on an Iranian couple who live in a comfortable-looking apartment in Tehran. But things are about to change.
In a resonant, masterful way, director Asghar Farhadi builds the story of The Salesman from incidents that appear to come out of nowhere.
In a scathing and unrelentingly observant style, The Salesman reveals how middle-class people can be victims of life’s injustices, and the emptiness of personal vengeance. Moreover, it is a powerful example of how a cross-cultural adaptation can serve as an ambassador between cultures and languages, especially in an era of miscommunication.
6. Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple (AAPL) and co-founder of Pixar, was a visionary leader who changed the way the world looks at technology. His innovative products such as the iPod, iPhone and iPad brought a revolution to the tech industry and are still widely popular today.
During his time with Pixar, Steve Jobs learned how to apply the principles of film production to creating innovative products and services. He applied these techniques to the development of the iPod, iPhone and the Apple Store.
One of the most important leadership lessons he learned was to work with a team and recruit people who were the best at their tasks. This enabled him to accomplish more than he could have done alone. It also gave him the opportunity to build on other people’s work, creating new ideas as he went.
7. The Rugby World Cup
If you are a sports fan, there is no better way to spend your weekend than watching the rugby world cup. It is one of the most popular sports events in the world, with billions of people tuned in to watch matches each time it is held.
The rugby world cup is a tournament of international men’s rugby union, played once every four years. It is a major sporting event, ranked as the third largest sport in the world after the summer olympics and the football world cup.
The first Rugby World Cup was hosted in 1987, with the majority of teams coming from the seven member unions of the then IRFB (now World Rugby). Australia won in 1991, followed by South Africa in 1995 and then England in 1999.
8. The Last King of Scotland
The Last King of Scotland is a brilliant drama that is highly engaging from start to finish. It also has a stunning cast that includes Forest Whitaker and James McAvoy.
The film is based on a novel by Giles Foden. It follows the story of a young Scottish doctor who decides to escape from the talons of his overbearing father by taking up a job as a missionary physician in Uganda.
When a military coup puts Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) into power, Garrigan meets the dictator and is invited to be his personal physician. He becomes enamored of Amin’s charisma, but quickly becomes blinded by decadence and finds himself trapped in a nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape.
9. The Great Gatsby
One of the most important American novels ever written, The Great Gatsby is a classic and continues to attract attention from scholars, critics, and audiences. It’s a modernist work that captures the spirit of the 1920s jazz age, a period when people could still dream big and believe in the possibility of self-made wealth.
What makes The Great Gatsby so successful, though, isn’t just its stunning visuals. It’s its ability to tell a story about the past and present at the same time, and to convey the cynicism of American society in a way that appeals to contemporary readers.
The film is directed by Baz Luhrmann, who is known for his bold style and use of 3-D technology. His vision is enthralling, and the costumes by long-term collaborator Catherine Martin are breathtaking. But the film’s pacing and constant moving camera prevent the audience from fully absorbing the scenes of hedonistic party-hopping that dominate the first half.
In the film Invictus, President Nelson Mandela uses sport to unite a divided country. His goal is to bridge the divide between black and white South Africans who are torn apart by the apartheid regime.
When Mandela is released from prison, he is elected President of South Africa and takes up his oath to unite the people of his country. He immediately begins his mission to bring racial harmony to the nation, recognizing that there is an important symbol that can help create unity: the national rugby team.
As a leader, Nelson Mandela is unfailing in his commitment to reconciliation and sets the standard for his people to live up to. He shows his dedication to racial reconciliation by changing the ethnic representation of his personal bodyguards and by making sure that the national rugby team is not discriminated against in any way.
