iCM Forum's Favorite Coming of Age Movies
:circle: Results :circle:
Image

We all have to grow up some time, writers and directors also did at one point. Following the basic writing lesson of sticking to what you know, it is a stable theme to explore in movies (and other media).

Coming of age film portrays the time of life when the protagonist(s) grows up, focusing on how he or she matures emotionally. Depicting the psychological and moral growth during the transition of a protagonist from youth to adulthood. Among others themes of self-discovery, sexual awakening and responsibilities vs. the loss of childhood dreams and naivete often play a big role. Protagonists are most often adolescents, although they can also be (slightly) younger or older. Often set in the past during the filmmakers own formative years, these movies are frequently infused with nostalgia.

That's not so weird, those voters don't complete overlap. Maybe someone voted for it, but didn't find time to make a list.

But 24 is a disappointing turnout nonetheless.

I found it just too complicated to collect titles for that, especially when I realized that so many have been watched so long ago. Kinda gave up in advance. (Although I just should have nominated my Top 20 or so favorites where I'm sure about the CoA theme, well ...)
Still interested to see what the Forum comes up with, so I'm not regretting my vote.

Yeah, also DTC was my focus and that's a poll of sorts too. One (new) poll a month is all I can handle, sorry.

Damn! I was planning to participate in this poll. The list would take time to put together, and other stuff got in the way and slipped my mind. This is an interesting topic. Look forward to see the result.

You're never too old to stop coming of age ..
Wikipedia wrote:On her 18th birthday, India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska)—a girl with a strong acuteness of the senses—has her life turned upside down after her loving father Richard (Dermot Mulroney) dies in a horrific car accident. She is left with her unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). At Richard's funeral, Evelyn and India are introduced to Richard's charismatic brother Charlie (Matthew Goode), who has spent his life traveling the world. India, who didn't know Charlie existed, is perturbed by his presence. He announces that he is staying indefinitely to help support India and Evelyn, much to Evelyn's delight and India's chagrin.
Should be fine. It's influenced by Hitchcok's Shadow of a Doubt, where it's indeed a teenage girl.
