What Do These Movies Have In Common?

I'm doing an exercise for Julia Cameron's Vein of Gold book. In order to find my "vein of gold," the area in which I work well thematically, I'm suppose to analyze my five favorite movies for themes.

1. Chocolat
2. Wonder Boys
3. Bridget Jones's Diary
4. Magnolia
5. A Room with a View

I'm also fond of the Shawshank Redemption and Cradle will Rock. I've tried to pull out themes on my own, but I think I could use some help. What themes do these movies have in common? Can you help? Thank you!
