I only got a couple of suggestions:

1. Grapes of Wrath- this one hits the location and time period precisely and some 
of the peripheral themes of the book.  And, of course, it is a classic.  But it 
lacks the Mexican immigrant angle which resonates with many of our students (78% 

2. Real Women Have Curves- different time period but it does focus on Mexican 
American culture, immigration, a young girl working to support her family, etc.  It 
also features America Ferrera, an actress familiar to the kids.

I am not sure which movie the teacher will choose.  Thanks for the suggestions.
