Adolescence is feared and famous for all the ups and downs that permeate this phase of life. First loves, friendships that we swore would be eternal, hormones in the flower of the skin and several other moments so deeply felt that they seem to have lasted forever.
However, when we reach adulthood, we know that all this passes and stays only in our memory. That’s why it’s always great to revisit those good and turbulent teenage stories to often feel certain perspectives about who we are.
To help you make this journey, we have gathered in this post 8 films that will make you laugh, cry and question yourself about the various perrengues of youth.
This is another special content that we have prepared alongside Eucerin! The dermocosmetics brand, which has been on the market for over 100 years, is with us in the campaign #PraQFilter with the mission of promoting self-acceptance and embracing the beauty we already have and is ours! Come on?!
Confessions of an Excluded Girl
starring Klara Castanho, “Confessions of an Excluded Girl” (2021), an adaptation of the homonymous work by Thalita Rebouças, it’s one of those movies that we watch and keep reminding ourselves of certain perrengues of teenage life.
The feature tells the story of Tetê, a 16-year-old girl who feels out of place in every environment where she lives. After her parents become unemployed, the young woman is forced to start over in a new home and at another school. In this new phase, she will do everything to not receive criticism about her appearance and way of being.
Available on Netflix.
back to prom
Can you imagine having an accident at school during your high school heyday, falling into a coma and waking up 20 years later? That’s what happens to the character of Rebel Wilson in “Back to the Ball” (2022).
Instead of touching life and understanding everything that has changed since then, Stephanie Conway decides to go back to high school and dedicate herself to living everything she couldn’t because she was unconscious.
Available on Netflix.
The advantages of being invisible
In this list, we also need to make room for the great classics like “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (2012). Growing up can be brutally difficult and very few cinematographic works portray this drama in such a direct and sensitive way.
In the film, an adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s book of the same name, Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a lonely boy who befriends two other young people totally different from him, Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller).
Despite all the dramas strongly reported in the film, the plot shows some of the main rites of passage of adolescence. In addition, it is always very beautiful to see the scene of the recreation of the classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and them driving through the tunnel, listening to “Heroes”, by David Bowie.
Available on Netflix, HBO Max, Prime Video and Globoplay.
By Amazing Places
Based on Jennifer Niven’s bestseller, “To the Amazing Places” (2020) will make you laugh, cry and remember many moments in life. The Young Violet Markey (Elle Fanning) and Theodore Finch (Justice Smith) see their lives start to change from the moment they meet. The protagonists have been through trauma and, together, they will try to find meaning and hope in all the mess that surrounds them.
Available on Netflix.
“A Mentira” (2010) is also a classic, right? After a series of rumors about who slept with whom spread around the school where she studies, Olive Penderghast, played by the iconic Emma Stone, You have to deal with the situation that got out of hand.
Despite all the chaos over how the entire school comes to see Olive, the young woman is totally torn between feeling bad for all the looks on her or enjoying this sudden attention.
Just remembering this movie already comes to mind “I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine/I got a love and I know that it’s all mine ooohhh oooohhh”.
Available on HBO Max.
With love, Simon
As a teen movie, “Love, Simon” (2018) is uniquely special to the LGBTQIA+ community. The feature is a romantic comedy full of charm, funny, direct and light.
The protagonist Simon (Nick Robinson) sees his life turn upside down when conversations between him and another boy leak through the school. In this situation, it is up to the young person to deal with the consequences and take control of their own history.
Available on Star+.
Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut celebrates teenage friendship in a very new light. “Booksmart” (2019) follows the routine of best friends Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and Amy (Kaitlyn Dever), two students who realize they only have one night to make up for the years they spent studying instead of living.
In addition to arriving with a wonderful soundtrack, the feature brings a euphoric, energetic, revolutionary and open-hearted adventure. It is to watch paying attention to every detail.
Available on Prime Video.
you can’t even imagine
“Você Nem Imagina” is yet another production that talks about adolescence and explores issues of race and emotional complexity. There, Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) is a studious young woman who does her classmates’ homework for money to help with the housework.
Everything is going great and normal until the football player approaches her to ask for help in a mission: to write a love letter to the most beautiful girl in school. This may even seem common, but it turns out that Ellie is in love with the girl who will receive the message of love. Jeez!
Available on Netflix.
