From Rebel Without a Cause to Superbad, American films for teens have conquered the world. A brilliantly decoded documentary, studded with key clips. Long, locker-lined corridors, leafy campuses, raging hormones, student jokes, questionable fights between hunky athletic guys, pom-pom girls and rebellious nerds: the codes of the teen movie, derived from real US high school life, are today well-rooted in our collective imagination. From its beginnings in the 1950s, with Rebel Without a Cause, to the hilarious virgins of the contemporary master of the genre, Judd Apatow, via the golden age of the 1980s, this documentary goes back over the history of a trend that has been undervalued for a long time.
