Well, technically, it's G-M, but it would have been weird not to include F in either group. Air your thoughts of these choices in a comment.

There was no trailer on YouTube, so here's the synopsis: Gracie, played by Kristen Bell, has always taken care of her three younger brothers and one sister. When her mother's drug and alcohol use goes too far, Gracie decides to take on the official role of mother to her brothers so they won't all be separated by social services.
A League of Their Own
Because I chose a clip instead of the trailer: In 1943 when the ranks of professional male baseball players were leaving for the war, a group of ladies left their homes to become part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and kept baseball alive for a grateful nation. This is their story. Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) is the team's most gifted player, and the camaraderie and jealousy with her sister (Lori Petty) is part of this film's charm and complexity. Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) is the drunken ex-player and slob manager who eventually brings the team to success.
