I saw American Teen last night in Century City. This documentary covers the senior year of five high school students…think Breakfast Club, not Laguna Beach. All the characters are your stereotypical high school movie fare with one caveat…they’re real, and unlike, the recent spate of reality TV (Laguna Beach, The Hills) in which real people follow manufactured story lines, these kids are themselves. Each is shown in their full light, with the good, the bad and the awkward pouring out all over the screen.
This movie is something special and definitely worth seeing.
