Living In Someone Else's Shoes

TV shows, movies, books, or other media that involve people living as "someone else" temporarily - whether swapping roles, taking a new role, or pretending to be someone else - to see life in someone else's shoes.

I'm planning an essay based on the concept of "living in someone else's shoes" and I'm looking for things in the media that explore such a concept. Either the person swaps places with someone else, or they see how it's like to be "someone else" for a while.
* 30 Days
* Wife Swap
* Faking It
* MTV's Made
* Parent Trap
* Freaky Friday
* The Great Mom Swap (is that the name? Two school friends swap families; one is from a slightly more high-class family while the other is from an immigrant family that owns a deli. The immigrant girl goes out with the high-class girl's brother at some point.)
Any media is fine, though I'm particularly looking at TV, movies, and books.
