    It's so strange that despite everyone having different childhood's and teen years, we all relate to one another on an emotional level. It's that indescribable feeling that we all have deep in our cores when we're younger and it follows us into adulthood and it's scary and amazing all at once. Gosh, I love this movie.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Mortified Nation

    A highly entertaining if "sheepish celebration of the maelstrom of emotions, careful posturing, and naked vulnerability that make up adolescence" (Wired). Even though my childhood was very different from the featured participants, I felt I could relate to the rawness of being a kid, when adulthood seems like a disease you know you won't catch.
