Netflix has recently added Good Kids, an indie summer-before-college film that was released last year (2016). Unlike many films about teenagers, the characters could actually be real people. They speak realistically, they dress realistically (but still feel connected to the aesthetic of the film) and they go to parties that feel like a big deal without being Generation-X level ridiculous. The whole film just comes across as genuine, while still being compelling to watch (which indie can unfortunately struggle with!) Good Kids is a funny, sweet take on the ‘quarter-life crisis’.
