MovieFilter: I recently watched and enjoyed the film All the Real Girls. Specifically, I seem to enjoy movies that are: slow, subtle, somewhat funny, southern, romantic and a bit long.

I'm directing a farce with a bunch of high-schoolers, and would love to give them some movie suggestions to look at for characters.
