Gandhi (1982)

The title character is AFI's #21 hero, portrayed on film by Ben Kingsley (in, essentially, his big screen debut) whose performance earned him his first (of two) Best Actor nomination and only Oscar (though he's also received two Supporting nominations). Best Director Richard Attenborough beat Spielberg and his film, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). Spielberg later directed Attenborough in Jurassic Park (1993). The film was a Best Picture Oscar winner which also won for Screenplay Writing, Editing, Costume Design, Art Direction, and Cinematography. #29 on AFI's 100 Most Inspiring Movies list.
