  1. Mystery Road (2013) and its sequel Goldstone (2016): two Australian films about sex trafficking.

    And in that vein, of course, the U.S. television show Law & Order: SVU.

    I'd call this "on the lighter side" except it is directed by Woody Allen: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) (1972).

    Haven't seen this one. Thanks for mentioning it.

    Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring: the title and Sally Field in the starring role makes the film sound like a comedy, but it was quite a surprise, as I recall. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I think I can still recommend it!

  3. Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring, 1971 television film starring Sally Field and Eleanor Parker. Some scenes show the very unglamorous necessity of scrounging other people's leftover food at outdoor restaurants when one decides to live a wanderer's life.

  4. In National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), Juliette Lewis's character watches It's a Wonderful Life. (I know it's not a TV show, but who has seen it more times in the theater than on TV these days?!)

    In Diner (1982), Keven Bacon gets all the answers right while watching College Bowl on TV.

  5. Ritchie Petrie threatens to run away from home in "Never Name a Duck," one of the many charming episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show. Ritchie starts packing a suitcase, but he never finishes because his father talks him out of joining Stanley the duck.

    Main character spends a lot of time at sea

    Blue, White and Perfect, 1942 film starring Lloyd Nolan as the detective Michael Shayne. George Reeves has a non-Superman supporting role.

    And how about A Night at the Opera (1935) and the famous stateroom scene? (Not sure "the main character" spends a lot of time at sea 😁)
