We will learn about, view, and discuss coming-of-age films whose themes articulate, satirize, or otherwise subvert the customary tropes of this genre. We will also note which directors and actors have gravitated towards this type of production. Specifically, we will discuss the following films (in this following order), which you will be responsible for having seen outside of class: Shoeshine (1946) (Amazon Prime Availability); The River (1951) (Amazon Prime Availability); Tiger Bay (1959) (Amazon Prime Availability); Pelle the Conqueror (1987) (Amazon Prime Availability); Ghost World (2001) (Amazon Prime Availability).
