Coming of Age, Documentary
Director Nanette Burstein's film features a familiar cast of high school characters: the geek, jock, spoilt princess, golden boy and arty outsider. The catch is that they weren't dreamt up by a Hollywood scriptwriter: they are real students at a small-town high school in Indiana. Burstein's camera follows their senior year, showing not just how they live up to universal stereotypes but revealing what lies beneath. American Teen will get you rooting for (at least) one of its characters, and also pondering some fascinating questions about life imitating art.
Essential drama as a socially disparate group of high school teens spend their saturday detention growing toward each other.
