    Based on a true story...but I am forgetting the details.
    Almost Famous was based on the early life of Cameron Crowe, who wrote and directed that movie, as well as Say Anything and Jerry Maguire. Among others.

    I don't know if it was "small," but The Big Easy is a fun movie, with a young Dennis Quaid as a very charming crooked cop in New Orleans. The first time I visited the city, I wanted to see all the sights from the movie.

    That is one of my favorites too.

    I was in High School, reading R & J in English class when the movie came out.

    The teacher or school arranged for all the English classes reading R & J to go to see the movie in a nearby town.

    One of my all time favorites is 84 Charring Cross Road with Anne Bancroft, Anthony Hopkins, and Judi Dench. Anne Bancroft plays an American writer who befriends people who work in a second hand book store in London after WWII. I think it's based on a true story.

    I also recommend A New Leaf and Calendar Girls which were already mentioned.

    Has anyone mentioned The Triplets of Belleville? Wacky, funny, offbeat, animated film.

    Thanks for that MNH.

    There are so many films being mentioned that I haven't seen, and I am really looking forward to seeing many of them.
    Thank you everyone for all the great suggestions.

    Haven't had a chance to go through all the suggestions added since last night, so apologies for duplicates.

    I second the recommend for anything by Miyazaki. My boys (big and small) all love them. Favourites include: Porco Rosso, My Neighbour Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle. I don't think I've actually seen any bad films out of Studio Ghibli.

    Others I'd recommend:

    Impromptu - Chopin, Liszt, George Sands and the gang behaving badly. Ridiculously funny.

    Fever Pitch - The British (Colin Firth/soccer) version, not the American (Jimmy Fallon/baseball) one. A great look at the life of a sports fanatic.

    Not necessarily small movies, but what I had playing on Tuesday as I drank beer and sewed quilt blocks:

    Moulin Rouge
    The Jerk
    Shaun of the Dead


    There was at least one more played that day, but darned if I can remember.

    One of my all time faves is The Ref, with Dennis Leary, Kevin Spacey, and Judy Davis. Delicious cast.

    Recently I watched Last Tango in Paris. OMGiH, was it tedious.
