Plug

At a friend’s urging, I saw American Teen tonight. I hope I don’t fall into the habit of using this space to push books, movies, or anything else, but this is a movie to see. Filmed in Warsaw, Indiana, over a single academic year, the film is a creative, reality TV-style documentary that follows five high school seniors through their final year at home, in school, and with each other. It’s got great characters, half a dozen compelling narratives woven together brilliantly and beautifully, and all the reality of high school in America today, no matter where you experienced it. I’ll leave my plug at that, but I’ll encourage you to do two things: click on the link above and watch the trailer. If those three minutes seem interesting, go see the movie. It won’t disappoint.
