'Movies Like Garden State': The Great American Quarterlife Crisis

Fresh out of college, bottom of the career ladder, and expected to cook and clean for themselves! These quarter-life kids have it tough (in very, very relative terms). Make sure to check out 'In a World...', written and lead by immensely talented newcomer Lake Bell.

'Here Y'Are Hipsters!': At Least Semi-Comedic Mumblecore

If you look up mumblecore you'll find out its a form of indie filmmaking defined by naturalistic dialogue. If that's too complicated, think whiney college-grads living in NYC, talking how real whiney college grads might talk. All characters are white. 40% are Greta Gerwig.

Modern Comedies of Neurosis

A trend that got rolling with the 'almost too neurotic to function' comedic maestro Woody Allen: enjoy watching these over-sensitive protagonists kvetch till they drop. Make sure to check out 'The Squid and the Whale' for some dysfunctional family fun!

'Bitterest of the Sweet': Best Modern Dramedy

No Gen-Xer wannabees allowed (we're looking at you Kanye)!
