Adolescence isn’t just about prom or wearing sparkly dresses.
To be honest, I haven’t seen a lot of the current crop of teen movies because there’s only so much time and there’s nothing that really drives me to do it.
My teenage years were exactly what they were supposed to be. Everybody has their own path. It’s laid out for you. It’s just up to you to walk it.
Doesn’t matter whether it’s a teen girl who’s pregnant, hasn’t told her parents, or an elderly couple dealing with one of them being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Those are real people to me. Those are the people I dealt with every single day.
Final Destination was the closest thing I’ve done to a teen movie but it certainly had an edge to it.
