Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
