As a teenager sometimes it’s hard to find movies that you can relate to. You’ll go on Google and sometimes get no luck. Don’t worry I got you. Here’s are 5 movies teenagers should watch.
Just Another Girl on the I.R.T (1992): Even though this movie has strong curse words in it. I think it’s necessary for teens to watch. Well, at least if the teen is mature to handle the language. This movie teaches teens especially young women how careful they should be when having sex. Teen pregnancy is the topic of this movie. You can find this movie on the Starz app. Honestly, I feel like this movie should get watched in early childhood class.
Cyberbully (2011): This movie teaches teens how cruel cyberbullying is. We should this is an important topic teenagers need to talk about. We all know how cyberbullying plays a big role in today’s society.
Freedom Writers (2007): Freedom Writers is a true story about a high school teacher and her students. From my point of view, it can show that no matter who you are. You can make a positive change on others like the teacher Mrs. Gruwell did for her students. Gang violence is talked about in this movie also. This movie was originally a book before it came out as a movie. You can get this book from Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and probably your local library.
Save the Last Dance (2001): In this movie, you’ll see an interracial relationship between Sarah and Derrick. There were some friends and family that judged their relationship. That didn’t stop them from being together to a certain extent. I know there are some teenagers out there who are in interracial relationships that may get judged because who they are happy with. So I think some teens will be able to relate to this movie. By the way, this movie has explicit language in it but mature teens will be able to handle it.
Bring it on (2000): This funny movie is full of high school teenage drama with cheerleaders. It’s a classic movie. I haven’t met anyone that didn’t like this movie. More females would obsessed over this move than men. I mean there isn’t a specific rule that men won’t enjoy this movie though.
Maybe some of you already seen these 5 movies. It doesn’t hurt to go watch them again. Each one of these movies teach every teen valuable lessons. If you’re a parent reading this you should let your teenager watch the movies listed above. Trust me they will enjoy it.
