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?

mine are
1. Four Weddings and Funeral
2. Sixteen Candles
3. Orange County
4. The Day the Earth Stood Still
5. Prancer

which are movies that showcase my coming of age, rather than a coming of age. I still need to see Roman Holiday.

i haven't seen any of your movies, except maybe roman holiday. i'm not sure about that one.

this is a really neat idea. i can't think of my list right now (too much cold medicine) but i'll work on it.

Goodbye Lenin was one of the sweetest movies I've ever seen.

I would put "Fucking Amal" on that list as it's very good.
