There is a small swell out in the ocean of buzz developing for the documentary American Teen. It was a hit at the 2008 Sundance Festival and from this first trailer you can see why. The marketing behind the movie has turned me off, since they’re playing up an obvious nod to the John Hughes classic The Breakfast Club, when there doesn’t seem to be any parallel.
The documentary, directed by Nanette Burstein, follows five high school seniors from Warsaw, Indiana.? It’s being released by Paramount Vantage.
