During during teens is when we begun to explore, we get confused and often frustrated as things begin to make sense and some others do not. Watching teens and their struggles in movies will help you put things in place about young people. Here are the top teen films from this decade.
1. Easy A
Easy A could arguably be the teen movie of the decade, having starred multi talented actress Emma Stone in a leading role, Penn Badgley and Amanda Bynes also. This cheeky teenage film follows Olive (Stone) who uses her high school’s rumor mill to her advantage, participating in a variety of antics until it all eventually comes crashing down.
2. The Fault In Our Stars
An excellent tragic and romance drama surrounding two teenagers, Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) diagnosed with cancer meet at a community support group, sharing their pain, life experiences and falling in love they decide to embark on an eventual heartbreaking and unforgettable journey to Amsterdam.
Unlike most black movies in this decade that were often centred around slavery and police brutality, Dope was different. Brining in young breed actors and music star Asap Rocky into the mix.
Dope is a film about a high school senior who attends a party, he finds himself and his friend scrambling after a dealer hides drugs in his backpack. This movie is wild from beginning to end so if you’re gonna turn away, i suggest you pause it.
4. Love, Simon
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.
5. The Perks Of Being a Wallflower
This 2012 film was based on an adaptation of nobel. A thoughtful and gorgeous meditation on mental health, trauma and the life-saving importance of our youthful friendships. With lovely, honest turns by Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, teaches us that sometimes being a misfit isn’t so bad. Sometimes it’s beautiful, even (or especially) when it hurts.
6. The Edge Of Seventeen
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all. The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine's well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine's History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.
7. Lady Bird
Greta Gerwig proved her directing expertise, expressively telling the tale of a graduating senior seeking to escape her Catholic school in Sacramento, and her complicated relationship with her mother, reveals a deft ability to showcase the struggles of growing up amid a changing society.
