The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)


IMDB: 8.0/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 86%

Plot: It was always going to be a challenge to bring this beloved coming-of-age book to the big screen, but author Stephen Chbosky did it all himself, and the film adaptation starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller as the main leads is all the better for it. All three main characters put in standout performances, painting a picture of high school that will be more than familiar to those who were outcasts. Really it’s a movie for anyone who has ever felt alone or unsure of themselves, and that’s all of us.

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)


IMDB: 7.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 94%

Plot: Hailee Steinfeld is hilarious and spot-on in this performance of awkward teen and high school junior, Nadine. When things could not get any tougher Nadine learns that her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) is dating her Darian (Blake Jenner). Feeling more alone than ever, Nadine finds comfort in the friendship of a thoughtful teen.

 Best Coming-of-Age Movies

Boyhood (2014)


IMDB: 7.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

Plot: Boyhood is the coming-of-age film that literally came of age. Filmed over 12 years, the movie follows Mason (Ellar Coltrane) as he traipses through adolescence. You can say that the gimmick of following the same actor over 12 years is shallow, but it really adds something to the proceedings. Rather than recreating the reality of a kid each year for 12 years through set design, wardrobe and whatnot, we have a natural representation of each of these years. And watching Mason and even his sister Samantha (Lorelai Linklater) grow up over these years adds a layer of sentimentality, making us care about their future.

 Best Coming-of-Age Movies

The Spectacular Now (2013)


IMDB: 7.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 91%

Plot: Young love's the topic of so many films, but rarely is it handled with this earnest, authentic grace. While The Spectacular Now plays into the trope of a bookish girl dating a bad boy, Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller bring a three-dimensional intensity to their young passion that'll make you ache for your own high school loves. We have seen plenty of teenage romances where the good girl falls for the bad guy, but not with a character as troubled as Sutter.

 Best Coming-of-Age Movies

Lady Bird (2017)


IMDB: 7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 99%

Plot: Lady Bird's looking for reinvention — that's why she's switched from her given name, Christine, to the kookier Lady Bird. She's in her final year at Catholic high school in Sacramento. But before she can leave it all behind, Lady Bird has to get through a year in high school. This movie takes all the staples of a coming-of-age movie, like relationships and friendships and mothers and awkward time in-between life phases, and makes them truer.

Call Me By Your Name (2017)


IMDB: 7.9/10
RottenTomatoes: 95%

Plot: Each year, Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and his parents spend the summer at their Italian villa, along with a visiting scholar his father has chosen. The summer Elio is 17, David (Armie Hammer), an American, comes to stay. What happens next will twist your heart until it drips...peach juice? Elio experiences a longing so pure, so aching that you'll be 17 again just by staring at it.

 Best Coming-of-Age Movies

Juno (2007)


IMDB: 7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 94%

Plot: Juno first charmed people because of the super-slangy way she talked, but even if the 2007 diction seems dated now, underneath there's still a heartwarming story about a girl who is trying to find her place among responsible adults, starting with finding parents to adopt her unplanned baby.
