“Coming of age.” What a diplomatic term for such an indelicate experience! For all it’s warts, adolescence is a time of incredible self-exploration, pain, and growth. And nothing captures it more poetically (and grotesquely) than a coming-of-age movie. For our next film series, “Grow Up!” MoPOP is exploring adolescence in all its lusty, zitty, complicated glory. Starting September 6, we’ll be celebrating cult classics from all over the genre map that show just how joyful and confounding being a teenager can be.
As with all our virtual watchalongs, to participate you'll need to register in advance, and then on event day make sure you have a copy of the film queued up and ready to watch on your end while keeping an eye on your e-mail inbox for a link to join our online discussion.
