This list's cause is to bring you the very finest films from the original JD film movement. From Truffaut’s chef-d’oeuvre to James Dean’s most iconic role, these classics prove the timelessness of youthful rebellion (if not the timelessness of 1950s fashion choices).
Movies in the vein of 'The Outsiders' and 'The Wandereds': following the misadventures of the 50s and 60s favorite countercultural group. Check out 'The Lords of Flatbush' for a stellar performance from none other than 'The Fonz'!
Dependability, manners, and fidelity are all well and good in a man - but they go out the window when one of these bad boys walks in the room sporting a leather jacket and a disdainful look directed squarely at authority. Enjoy the likes of 'Keith' and 'A Walk to Remember'!
Flash back to those high school days of giggles, kisses, tears, hormones, and -realistically- rejection. Lots and lots of rejection. Oh well, in these movies the underdog always gets the girl at least!
A collection of the baddest boys and girls, from duck tails to the grunge days. The more things change, the more teenagers remain hormone fueled morons. Check out 'Bad Boys' for one of Sean Penn's breakout roles!
If you're in an introductory film studies class the odds are you will have to watch the vast majority, if not all, of the films on this list. If you haven't taken one yet, why not get started on your homework in advance!
