Coming of Age movies

I took this idea from a weekly podcast on movies I listen to (Filmspotting) - every week they have a Top 5 X Movies to coordinate with the movie they're reviewing that week. This week's was "coming of age" movies, and since I was putting a list together anyway, I thought I might as well post it here.

Besides the obvious, the uniting theme in all these movies is a sense of disillusionment.

5. Good Bye Lenin! (2003)
4. Artemisia (1997)
3. Tagebuch einer Verlorenen (1929) (Diary of a Lost Girl)
2. Les roseaux sauvages (1993) (Wild Reeds)
1. Roman Holiday (1953)

Anyone want to put together their own list/talk about these movies?
