We have been cable free for almost 2 months abd it has been a rewarding experience for our family.\I have not been mush of a TV watcher and cant say I miss the sounds of Hannah Montana or other Disney Drivel in my home. We have been getting movies from nearby library and I am compiling a list fo good movies to possible watch with my tween/teen daughter.
I while ago a caught Pretty in Pink on TV and was surprised how “adult” and angry it was- seems very out of synch with kids I know. I think the may have been reflective of the 80’s but I just don’t see my daughter and her friends that way at all.
I am looking for for good movies for teens that explore teen angst or celebrate teen discovery and just don’t exploit them.
List of Good Teen Movies
Here is list I have started:
Dead Poet’s Society
Diary of Anne Frank ( Original )
Splendor in the Grass ( this is bit heavy but holds up)
Mask ( bit dated but still makes me cry)
Friday Night Lights
To Sir, With Love ( I LOVED this movie!)
