The Jock? The Geek? The Rebel? The Princess? The Heartthrob?
Who are you? By the time graduation rolls around, everyone has a high school. Some of us treasure these years of our lives and some of us prefer to forget them. So, for better or for worse, director Nanette Burstein has created the modern day Breakfast Club, American Teen.
Opening in limited release on July 25 and going nationwide in August, this documentary follows five seniors during their final days of high school and it’s already getting killer reviews.
