School of Babel (La Cour de Babel) by Julie Bertuccelli (2013, 90 min.). This remarkable and powerful documentary follows immigrant students enrolled in a special “reception class,” where they work to improve their French so they can join the rest of the peers in the regular classes. Representing 24 nationalities, we see the innocence, the enthusiasm, and inner turmoil of these teenagers caught in the midst of starting a new life.
