Coming Of Age In Suburbia

Since their emergence as a post-World War II sensation, the suburbs have inspired the imaginations of filmmakers, creating a decades-long record of the deep cultural shifts in American life. Coming Of Age In Suburbia is an ongoing series that examines representations of suburban youth culture down the decades, featuring films that express the eternal conflict between the constraints of small town living and the experience of being young and, for the first time, confronting the values and expectations of the American dream.
