everyone i’m attracted to is out of my league and in a different country
I’ve dressed thousands of actors, actresses and animals, but whenever I am asked which star is my personal favorite, I answer, “Grace Kelly.” She is a charming lady, a most gifted actress and, to me, a valued friend. - Edith Head
i guess different people will have varying ideas of what constitutes a coming of age film but traditionally it’s been a youth who is presented as innocent or misguided or something or other and who goes through a transformation which brings them from childhood to adulthood. generally coming of age stories focus on pre-teen boys like Stand By Me (1986) or even The 400 Blows (1959) but there’s also a slew of films about teenage coming of age stories like The Breakfast Club (1985) or American Graffiti (1973) or Dazed and Confused (1993). as far as categorizing, I think it has a lot to do with being angsty and dialogue-heavy (or internal monologue-heavy) and usually the people ‘coming of age’ are going through something unfamiliar or rebelling against something. idk there are a lot of factors at play but mostly I think you’ll just know if you’re watching a coming of age film
i was going to but then i watched Life of Brian instead
