Teenage (2013)

Matt Wolf directs Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw and Julia Hummer in this documentary based on Jon Savage’s book Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture.

A fine collection of footage and lost voices, movements, trends and mini-biographies. Ties social and political upheavals to fashion subsets in fascinating ways. Interprets responses cannily. Boy Scouts and Swing Kids as proof that youth movements existed before Rebel Without A Cause.
