Although i was watching and loving movies for quit a long time i never felt there was something defining my generation so much till i discovered mumblecore. A bunch of movies about twenty somethings talking endlessly about nothing, hopelessly trying to find themselves in the process. All of a sudden it felt not so bad to not have a job, quitting school much to early or not being able to find a grilfriend due socially awkwardness. A few years later, i partly found myself but still try to find shelter with them whenever i can placing them forever in my heart if only it was to remember how hard it is being a young adult when everybody is looking down on you and pretends to know better.

When i begin to discover them sadly the genre already had reached the mainstream with movies like Greenberg, Cyrus and Girls.
