Teenagers didn't always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn't matter - this was a new idea of how people come of age. They were all 'Teenagers.' A hypnotic rumination on the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, TEENAGE is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and diary entries read by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, and others. Set to a a shimmering contemporary score by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), TEENAGE is a mesmerizing trip into the past and a riveting look at the very idea of 'coming-of-age.'

Excellent documentary on the creation of the "Teenager" class around the world beginning with the establishment of child labor laws. Only drawback is there is very little in the way of illustrating the transition of teenagers from the 60's to current.

Sexual Content: Child and adult nudity. Some artistic in nature but all of it needless in nature. Not offensive, just pointless catering to pedophiles.
