Anybody who sort of knows me knows that movies are my vice, my guilty pleasure. A bad evening at the movies…never mind, there’s no such thing!
Every now and then a movie comes along that has a lot to teach those of us who work with young teens. And most of the time they seem to fly under the radar without much fanfare. So I thought I’d share three fairly recent movies that I think everybody who works with junior highers or younger high schoolers should see. They are all very unique, and all give a peek into the various waters young teens navigate.
Moonrise Kingdom. The best Wes Anderson film yet.
The Way Way Back. The first 15 minutes will make you question this pick. The rest of the movie is pure gold.
Mud. My inlaws recommended this movie and I delayed far too long. One of my favorites in a long time!
Do you have a favorite to recommend?
