DAZED AND CONFUSED (1993)

Teens hang on the last day of school, 1976, in Austin, Texas. Not much happens. Mostly in a good way, I promise.

FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982)

A surprisingly down-to-earth and enjoyable movie about a bunch of 80s teens who have no idea what they’re doing.

FOOTLOOSE (1984)

Is it a hard hitting drama about small town life? Is it a musical? The answers lie in Kevin Bacon’s angry dancing.

LES QUATRE CENTS COUPS (1959)

Francois Truffaut’s debut about his own wayward childhood still feels fresh today.

AMERICAN GRAFFITI (1973)

Before “Star Wars,” George Lucas made this ancestor of a million teenager movies.

MADCHEN IN UNIFORM (1931)

Maybe the first feature film dealing with themes of homosexuality, it feels surprisingly fresh today.
