Popularity is everything; breakups and missed jump-shots are the end of the world; a college acceptance is a dream come true; and an email forwarded to the wrong person is your worst nightmare.

This revealing year-in-the-life feature delivers the real heartbreak, hilarity and – OMG – drama of senior year first-hand from five very different viewpoints. And no matter who you identify with, everyone will relate to American Teen.

Warsaw Rocks

I live in warsaw, so im pretty much a pro at this movie. I know the cast, even my neighbor was in this movie. Sincre I go to Warsaw High School it was a fun movie to watch. I highly recommend it. It is funny, sad, daring, and flat out fun, so if your in to those types of movies this is a great one for you, period, no questions asked. You'll love it just like I did.

Teenage Wasteland

If I were to use one word to describe this movie it would be "painful". Its pretty painful to watch a group of teens, all at different places mentally and in the maturation process, go through their day to day activities, victories, and failures. In the first 10 minutes I was considering turning it off not because it was bad, but because it was difficult to watch the insecurities of teens so clearly put on view. But alas, we all have been teens at one point, and the more I watched the more I found myself sympathizing, cheering on, or wanting to slap some of the students....and it really hit me for the first time since being a teen just what a difficult time in everyone’s life the teens are. This documentary captures that awkward time that we all have gone or will go through pretty candidly and is certainly worth a watch.

Loved it !!!

The most quintessential depiction of teenage life ever shot on film. I knew I would love this movie from the first preview I saw. Many movies are made scripted like this but this was so raw and real. It took me back to high school and it was refreshing to see that no matter where you are high schools are all the same.
