5 Teen Movies To Watch Before You Graduate High School
Dead Poet’s Society: Some people don’t understand why this is so popular. I get it. The movie isn’t just about a teacher and some kids. It’s about understanding, love, acceptance and encouragement. We all need somebody in our corner. This movie reminds me of my best friends and the people who are always encouraging me no matter what.
Good Will Hunting: If you are from a family that struggles to make ends meet, or just isn’t all that wealthy then this movie is one to watch. It kind of proves that even when you don’t have a lot of money or things, you still have a chance at life. Someone without all the extras in life managed to be genius. It’s just a pretty amazing story and is encouraging.
To Kill A Mockingbird: You might have to read the book in literature or English classes, but watching the movie is a must. It is old, and it is in black and white, but it is a great movie about race and judgment. It’s sad that we still have people who don’t like each other because of the color of their skin, and if you live somewhere that it is still an issue you understand how sad it is.
The Giver: I loved this movie when it came out. It is all about seeing the world through new and fresh eyes. It’s great for those who feel like people just don’t understand that we can still make a difference.
The Breakfast Club: Our parents may have worn weird clothes, but this movie really is cool. It’s a great choice, because it reminds you that weird person next to you on the bus may have a bigger story than you realize. You just can’t judge people on appearances.
These teen movies to watch before you graduate high school are all about learning to accept the people around you and not make quick judgments. As an adult, especially in college, you’ll encounter a lot more people from various walks of life. This will prepare you to understand them for who they are and not what they look like, how much money they have or where they are from.
