Film Reviews - Coming of Age


Shannon's Definition of Coming of Age films: Coming of age films are ones where characters come into their own through self-discovery, self-development, actualization, actions or inaction and often include the process of claiming or re-claiming their identity and power.

Wikipedia Definition of Coming of Age films: Coming-of-age film is a film genre which focuses on the psychological and moral growth of the protagonist from youth to adulthood, thus personal growth and change is an important characteristic of this genre.
