American Teen (2008)

Film details


Documentary. A look at a year in the life of four very different senior students in a high school in Warsaw, Indiana. Hannah, the arty outsider, contrasts with the pretty, rich and overachieving Megan, and whilst Colin enjoys the status highs of being in the school's prestigious basketball team, socially isolated Jake is highly lacking in self-esteem. Each protagonist undergoes turbulent changes and challenges as they ponder their future beyond high-school.
