A true historical depiction with comedy, romance, & classical music. Nineteenth century England is the setting for this more than a love story about George Sand, an extremely independent woman writer, who often wore stylish men's clothes and took a male nom de plume in order to be published. She does not allow the mediocrity, pettiness, and hypocrisy of ordinary life to stop her from being a sincere, loving, creative, intelligent, unique, independent and strong spirited woman. A portion of the film deals with her romance with Frederick Chopin. It portrays the vicissitudes of an artist's life. Highly inspirational for women who dare to be different.

Here's something with more visual aid :)
The Secret Garden
Based on the children's classic by Francis Hodgeson Burnette, the author of The Little Princess (also highly recommended.) A magical film about a strong willed ten year old girl who goes to live with her uncle and cousin in the English countryside at the turn of the century. This independent, strong and delightful character impacts everyone around her and brings life and love to her young cousin. Visually stunning and rewarding, the film shows how illness and faulty belief systems can be overcome by the power of love coupled with strength of character. A film that all young girls should see, it exalts the magic of nature, the power of love, and advances a "believe in your inner feelings" ethic for young ladies.
*Recommended for the whole family - all ages - to watch together. This is a live character film, not animated, so be careful to rent this version as there are several on the market. (text from the same link)
Male characters in The Secret Garden exemplify similar values as the female characters so little boys, sit down and concentrate :).
If class appeals to you, the setting which is England, in both films, surely provides it.
