Fighting with My Family - yes, it’s about wrestling, but’s it funny, about a tight-knit family and uplifting
Sing Street - about a group of kids in Dublin in the 80’s who start their own band
The Farewell - so good, some sad/moving parts but ultimately very uplifting
A few older ones that have a Tom Hanks movie vibe - Life of Pi, Curios Case of Benjamin Buttons, Babe, The Truman Show, Field of Dreams, Rain Man(this one might be too adult for your teen but we watched it again recently and man did it hold up)
We are going to watch The Walk (2015 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in it). It's about the french tight rope walker who walks between the Twin Towers in 1974. I had never heard of it before, but it was recommended and the reviews look pretty good!
We watched so many 80s and 90s movies and binge watching Friends now. Friends is so good still! If you have a girl, Rom coms like My Best Friend's Wedding, Pretty Woman, 13 going on 30 are classics. What about teen movies like Brain Games, Back to the Future, Outsiders? We like light-hearted feel good films (not Outsiders though. NO, definitely no. But it is really good.)
