8. 'The Commitments'
Based on a 1987 novel by Irish writer Roddy Doyle, The Commitments tells the story of a working-class soul band in Ireland. They struggle, they rise, they fight, they fall. It's like a particularly good episode of Behind the Music. The soundtrack features the original cast playing classics by Al Green, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Mary Wells.
