Hello everybody,
I need your help. I īm teaching the topic world of work with secondary school teens, do you have any suggestions for a fim we can watch? I īve already shown the classics, I guess!!??( Devil wears Prada; Office Space). But I really wanted to surprise them with something out of the box. any ideas?
Thank you!

I think a good option could be "Working Girl" with Melanie Griffith and Sean Young.
It īs a bit mad but it is very good and very funny.

THE TERMINAL with Tom Hanks. Gives you all kinds of jobs in an airport :) Also good as a motivational movie for learners of English.

How about this one? This also shows the generation gap and how the modern working world is becoming more and more stressful.

9 to 5 is an old comedy that might work as something light (and they would probably laugh about the nostalgia).  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080319/
Another I absoultely love is Outsourced, which includes a great introduction into Indian culture as well.
