Speaking of John Hughes’ 80’s teen movies, here’s a documentary I’m excited about. American Teen. It was directed by Nanette Burstein who won a directing award for it at Sundance 2008. Everything I’ve read about this film says that it’s a funny, hopeful, engrossing film that follows a group of Warsaw, Indiana high school kids from September to graduation their senior year. Love the obvious poster riff. Marketing is everything, isn’t it? Opens this July in the states.

Update: watch trailer “>here.
