We saw "American Teen" twice over the weekend at the True/False (documentary) film festival in Columbia, Missouri. It was an amazing, in-depth look at today's teenager. My 14 year old went with us to see it and her comment? "It was very accurate." One of the top films of the festival. Shows the pressures teens face today in a very honest way, full of raw emotion and real tears. Every teenager and every parent of a teenager should see it. It is eye-opening and thought provoking. The director was here for Q & A afterward and she confirmed for us that one of the teens, after getting a job on the west coast, decided it wasn't for her and moved to the east coast (!) where she is now attending a less expensive film school!! The others are still doing what they were doing at the end of the film (i.e.-attending college).
