That’s the title of a new-ish documentary, narrated by Fairuza Balk of Return to Oz and The Craft fame, about the high school experience as depicted in film. Funny thing is, there are no movies from the last ten years featured. In watching it yesterday, the most recent film I saw discussed was 2004’s Mean Girls.

Seems we’re deep into the age of teenagers as characters in fantasy and sci-fi flicks. But before they were werewolves, vampires and victims of dystopia, high-school age people were…high-schoolers.
