Fast Times and Excellent Adventures goes behind the scenes of a genre where cult hits mingled with studio blockbusters, where giants like Spielberg and Coppola rubbed shoulders with baby-faced first-timers and where ambitious future superstars Sean, Demi and Tom all got their big break. Music, comedy and politics - all play a part in the surprisingly complex history of the '80s teen movie. And while the films might have been aimed primarily at adolescents, the best tackle universal issues and remain a magnet to all ages. Time of your life, huh kid?
From a late '70s Hollywood in flux to an early '90s indie scene that gave youth cinema a timely reboot, respected film expert James King smartly highlights the personal struggles, the social changes and the boardroom shake-ups that produced an iconic time in movie history" -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781472123725 More info

She examines the metamorphosis of Jane Austen's novel Emma into the Beverly Hills comedy Clueless and the way the American Pie trilogy has subverted the gross-out sex comedy into a lesson in sexual manners. She looks at the link between these films and some of the most innovative teen television of the last two decades, including Popular, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the teen detective show Veronica Mars. In the process, she demonstrates how teen films and tv series deal with the tragic and comic undersides of the American dream."--BOOK JACKET. Notes: Includes indexes.

And why, when it represents such powerful and enduring ideas about youth and adolescence, is teen film usually viewed as culturally insignificant? Teen film is usually discussed as a representation of the changing American teenager, highlighting the institutions of high school and the nuclear family and experiments in sexual development and identity formation. But not every film featuring these components is a teen film and not every teen film is American. Arguing that teen film is always a story about becoming a citizen and a subject, Teen Film presents a new history of the genre, surveys the existing body of scholarship, and introduces key critical tools for discussing teen film. Surveying a wide range of films including The Wild One, Heathers, Akira and Donnie Darko, the book's central focus is on what kind of adolescence teen film represents, and on teen film's capacity to produce new and influential images of adolescence"-- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-192), filmography (p. 177-182) and index ISBN: 9781847886866 Donation: Donated by Alex Gionfriddo, 2013 Contents: -- list of illustrations -- acknowledgments -- introduction: the adolescent industry: 'teen' and 'film' -- pt.
