Make Way For Tomorrow does seem to deal with a contemporary issue although I haven't seen it.
I recently saw The Sorcerer and the White Snake: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sor...he_White_Snake Score 9/10
This is a variation of an ancient Chinese legend. When my wife examined the description of the movie on the cover she immediately recognized it as the "White Snake story". I never heard of it before. It is probably like not hearing about Beauty and the Beast. The story is about good and evil and romantic love.
