Inbetween Girl

There are a ton of coming-of-age movies out there and it is tough to find something that stands apart from the field.   What I like about this movie is that it navigates through a lot of various themes without beating you over the head with them.  Lesser movies may have harped on some of these themes – bad parenting, bad boys, teen angst, etc.  This movie was intelligently written and the lead is just fantastic (as was the other female character, once we got to know her).  I’ve seen a ton of movies in this genre – this is definitely one of the better ones.

Movie title: Inbetween Girl

Movie description: Teen artist Angie Chen does NOT like Liam—she just likes getting rides home from him after soccer practice. Okay, so he has great eyebrows, but he’s with Sheryl, the instagram princess of their Episcopalian private school. After being blindsided by her parents’ sudden divorce, Liam serves as a welcome distraction. But when that distraction knocks on her window in the middle of the night, a secret hookup will set Angie on a journey of sexual awakenings, racial insecurities and artistic expression as she comes to discover what she wants—and who she wants to be.
