Spotlight on Coming of Age

Few things have been more inspirational to filmmakers over the years than that period of life when childhood innocence turns to adolescent hunger and adult knowingness. The moments are ripe for drama: growing up and going to school, leaving home and entering the world beyond your family, struggling to fit in somewhere. Fumbling formative moments invest these stories with hilarity, horror and sometimes heartfelt nostalgic revelation.
