Twenty Other Great Teen Movies

The BFI listed Ten Great Teen Films, supplemented by ten further submissions from the general public. Needless to say I, and many others, were dissatisfied with their list. So, a few frantic minutes of crowdsourcing later, here are our own submissions, in no particular order:

  1. Juno
  2. Easy A
  3. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  4. Mean Girls
  5. Brick
  6. Donnie Darko
  7. Pump Up The Volume
  8. Pretty in Pink
  9. Ten Things I Hate About You
  10. Boyz ‘n the Hood
  11. Kidulthood
  12. Empire Records
  13. Perks of Being a Wallflower
  14. Fish Tank
  15. Party Girl
  16. American Pie
  17. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
  18. The Lost Boys
  19. St Elmo’s Fire
  20. Quadrophenia

Update: I took off The Ketchup Effect, because it was a bit obscure, and replaced it with Empire Records.
