Help me find some movies to discuss with high schoolers

I work with the high school group at our church, and would like to have a few movie discussion evenings. What movies would you recommend? Topics I'd like to cover are things such as poverty, race, and consumerism. A lot of these kids are typical suburban religious types and I want to broaden their exposure to social issues and help them see past themselves.
The ideal movie would touch on one or more of these sort of issues without being political, heavy handed or preachy about it (I'd like to have an open ended discussion without the movie telling us exactly what to think). Documentarys are great as long as they have a good story and aren't too dry. Also it's a church group so anything too racy might be iffy.
