Being a teenager is a messy journey full of extreme highs and lows. While most would agree there is no shortage of movies about teens, these stories can often feel like they were crafted by people who have never actually had a conversation with someone in that age range — or, feature 27-year-olds playing them.
Even the most beloved teen movies often feel entirely over-the-top in how they depict this unique period of life onscreen. So we put together a list of 20 movies that actually treat their teen characters like they're, well, teens.
