Joining up with Kelly at 7 Quick Takes today.
Seven "Coming of Age" Movies I consider non-tripe, witty, and remarkable. Movies every teen should see!!
1. The Trouble With Angels
One of the BEST movies about nuns and vocations I have ever seen. My kids love this movie. It never ever feels dated to us! The nuns are believable, good, kind, funny and love their vocation. Plus, the movie has so many incredibly quotable quotes that can be used in every day living around our house. We quote it all the time!
2. October Sky
Making a dream a reality the true way: perseverance, trial and error, a little grit, and a lot of help from friends and teachers. No magic or quick fixes here..just hard work. This movie also gave a really great picture of the Father/Son relationship.
3. The Emperor's Club
A story about the fact that good teachers matter. A story about character and how it is achieved or lost by our actions or omissions.
4. Swing Kids
Standing up for right in the face of evil, and a son's discovery of the true greatness of his father. For older teens.
5. The Cowboys
John Wayne at his very best. And some loveable young cowboys. Great story!!
6. In A Better World
A study of the power of love and forgiveness. For older teens.
7. Of Gods and Men
The meaning of vocation and choice. The power of grace.
