I have to agree with a couple of other posts here that the "The Shawshank Redemption" is a great movie.
One of my other choices would be "Dances With Wolves".
I don't know why, but that movie affected me in a way that not many movies have. It could very well be because I live in Western Minnesota in an area that used to be all prairie. I have read accounts from the settlers in this area who told similar accounts of the immense amount of Buffalo which were found here. Stories of settlers hearing a low rumbling sound 5-10 minutes before a huge herd of Buffalo would come running by. Also, stories of the beaten down trail they would leave behind.
The movie did a nice job of showing this, and it made me feel like I was standing in the rolling fields of my homeland and experiencing it firsthand.

"Band Of Brothers" is technically a mini-series, but still a masterpiece.
Much of Hitchcock's work is priceless. Can't go wrong there.
