Tell Us About Old Movies That Were Surprisingly Woke

Some classic movies really hold up!

How many times have you rewatched one of your favourite old movies only to realise that it has not aged well?

But while so many classic movies don't hold up, some are ... surprisingly progressive.

We want you to tell us about movies that have actually aged really well.

Maybe you love how the The Apartment confronted toxic masculinity and mental health all the way back in 1960.

Were you surprised by the thoughtful depiction of an interracial queer relation in the 1985-film My Beautiful Laundrette?

The Iron Giant came out 20 years ago, but maybe you think that its message of anti-violence and heroism are just as important today as they were in 1999!

Tell us about your favourite old movies that are surprisingly woke in the comments below and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video!
