One of the movies that touched me the most about family and community has to be Antonia's Line.  A Dutch film directed by Marleen Gorris, Antonia moves back to her hometown with her daughter after World War II.  The story unfolds focusing on the mothers and daughters of Antonia's descendants .  The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1996 and was called "a feminist fairy tale."  It's a delight from start to finish.  I've included the trailer, but you can also rent it from Netflix.  Enjoy.
