青春英文电影推荐

Being a teenager is an extremely big deal. A man and woman’s formative years are what moulds them; defines their views and interests, and exposes them to the cold, harsh realities of adult life.


Below, we’ve compiled the definitive list of cinema that best captures that six-year period of hormones, strife and acute discomfort. From classic coming-of-age tales, to gritty1 black and white portraits of urban struggle, these are the movies that bottle2 our most awkward years.


Lady Bird (2017)


“I wish I could live through something.”


It’s arguable that Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut is one of the most keenly and truthfully observed movies about the modern adolescent experience, capturing as it does all the posturing3, insecurity, fractiousness4 and fervour that comes with it. Which is all well and good, of course, but did we mention it’s also a flat-out5 hoot6?


The backbone of Lady Bird is the relationship between a strung-out7 mother (Laurie Metcalf) and her high-minded8 daughter (Saoirse Ronan) whose lofty self-image is somewhat let down by her work ethic, or lack thereof. Lady Bird, as Ronan’s character re-names herself, also has the usual teen perils to contend with: complicated female friendships and pretentious9 suitors.


Moonlight (2016)


“At some point you’ve got to decide for yourself who you gonna be. Can’t let nobody make that decision for you.”


Long after the Oscars ‘best picture’ kerfuffle10 has faded, Barry Jenkins’ bona fide11 masterpiece about three stages in the life of Chiron, a young African-American man growing up in Miami, Florida, struggling with poverty, his mother’s drug problem, and coming to terms with12 his own sexuality, will stand the test of time.


Based on Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, three different actors—Alex R Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes, respectively—portray Chiron as a young boy, teenager and young man, with all the fear, vulnerability, anger and sadness that churn in him as he tries to make sense of his life, and of himself.


Call Me by Your Name (2017)


“If you only knew how little I really know about the things that matter.”


Luca Guadagnino’s romantic Eighties-set drama, based on André Aciman’s 2007 novel of the same name, in no way undercuts13 the dreamy narcissism, both painful and pleasurable, of being a teenager. On the contrary it revels in it, as the delicately handsome 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet), vacationing with his folks in Northern Italy, begins a passionate relationship with a visiting grad student, Oliver (Armie Hammer).


The film was noteworthy not only for the tender portrayal of young love, but for the sumptuousness14 of the setting, the elegance of the clothes, the beauty of the cinematography and so on. Never has a holiday in the Italian countryside—yes, even with your parents—looked so appealing. We’d also be not in the least surprised, if it did wonders for the sale of soft fruits.


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)


“It is his fault he didn’t lock the garage.”


The definitive teenage fantasy film, Matthew Broderick’s portrayal of the eponymous Ferris became the template for a generation of slacker, troublemaker protagonists15.


So ’80s it hurts—in the best way possible of course—Ferris Bueller’s Day Off explored the great unknown transition from juvenility to adulthood, and made everyone who watched it dream of sacking off school, ignoring your parents and taking ownership of the keys to a Ferrari.


Boyhood (2014)


“I sure as shit don’t know. Neither does anybody else, okay? We’re all just winging it, you know?”


Richard Linklater’s poignant16 or pretentious (you decide) 166-minute epic was famously filmed over the course of 12 real time years, with the cast reconvening17 each year to pick up the story.


Charting the course of a young man’s life from infancy to his first day at college (hence the clever name), Boyhood may have been perceived as too meandering18 and earnest by some, but what you can’t argue against is its emotional and authentic take on the trials of a normal existence.


The Breakfast Club (1985)


“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.”


Not to be confused with that trendy breakfast place where you have to queue up for ages, The Breakfast Club is broadly considered to be the definitive high school movie and is still a stone cold classic.


Following five teenagers from different school cliques as they’re forced into morning detention, the sentiment might be a bit obvious now, but the comedy timing and unconventional character development stop it from ever straying into soppy territory.


La Haine (1995)


“The world is ours.”


One of the most beautifully shot films you’re ever likely to see, this French classic ignited huge social discussions upon its release, as it gave a platform to the bored, lost and listless youths of France’s untouchable ghettos.


While the subject matter might be harsh, the fundamentals for a classic young man’s movie are all there. From the tense challenges of friendship to the longing for adventure and escape.That ending too...


Donnie Darko (2001)


“Don’t worry. You got away with it.”


Made over just 28 days with a budget of $3.8 million, Donnie Darko was the mind-bending19 sci-fi drama that gave Jake Gyllenhall his big break, playing a teenager who befriends an apocalyptic20 rabbit who may or may not be there...Yes, it’s a bit weird.


While its theatrical release bombed, it has since gained a cult following thanks to its challenging themes of death, depression and parallel universes. Perfect for anyone who is feeling a bit existential and pretentious.


青春期至关重要。无论男女,这是一个人性格形成的关键时期,人格个性得以塑造,观点兴趣逐渐定型,并开始接触到成年生活冰冷、残酷的现实。


如下是我们整理的八大优秀青春电影,它们淋漓尽致地展现了六年青春期的荷尔蒙、冲突与阵痛。从经典的成长故事到写实的都市挣扎黑白画,这些影片封存了我们尴尬至极的青葱岁月。


《伯德小姐》(2017)


“我希望我能经历些什么。”


格蕾塔·葛韦格的导演处女作可以说是一部极为敏锐、真实地刻画当今青少年成长的影片,将青春期的矫情、不安、冲动与热情尽数捕捉。这当然挺好,不过,还得提一句,该片也是一部彻头彻尾的喜剧,笑料百出。


《伯德小姐》的主线是一个心力交瘁的母亲(劳里·梅特卡夫饰)与她心高气盛的女儿(西尔莎·罗南饰)之间的关系。女儿自视甚高,这一形象却因其缺乏职业道德而打了折扣。“伯德小姐”是罗南饰演的角色给自己改的名,她还要应对各类常见的青春期险情:错综复杂的闺蜜关系与自命不凡的追求者。


《月光男孩》(2016)


“在某个时间点,你需要自行决定自己想成为怎样的人。不能让任何人替你做那个决定。”


《月光男孩》是巴里·杰金斯执导的一部走心杰作,影片以喀戎的三段人生为架构,讲述了这位非裔美籍年轻人在佛罗里达迈阿密长大,与贫穷的家境、母亲的毒瘾苦苦斗争,最终接受自己性向的故事。即便荣获奥斯卡最佳影片奖的喧嚣褪去良久,这部经典之作仍将经受住时光的考验。


该片改编自塔雷尔·阿尔文·麦卡尼的剧本《月光下忧郁的黑人男孩》,三名男演员——亚历克斯·R.希伯特、阿什顿·桑德斯和崔凡特·罗兹——分别饰演了童年、少年与青年时期的喀戎。影片刻画了喀戎在找寻自我的人生道路上恐惧、脆弱、愤怒与悲伤交织的心路历程。


《请以你的名字呼唤我》(2017)


“我对重要的事情真的很无知,要是你知道这一点就好了。”


卢卡·瓜达尼诺执导的这部以80年代为背景的浪漫电影改编自安德烈·阿西曼2007年的同名小说,它丝毫未淡化青春期暧昧不清而又痛并快乐着的自恋情愫。相反,它予以浓墨重彩的渲染,描绘了清秀俊美的17岁男孩艾利欧(提莫西·查拉梅饰)与家人在意大利北部度假时,和访问博士生奥利弗(艾米·汉莫饰)之间发展的一段非常浪漫的暧昧关系。


本片不仅因对青葱恋爱的细腻刻画而引人入胜,华丽的场景、优雅的服饰、美丽的运镜等也是影片的吸睛点。在意大利鄉村度假——嗯,即使与父母一起——也从未如此具有吸引力。如果影片引爆了浆果的销售,我们也丝毫不会惊讶。


《春天不是读书天》(1986)


“都是他的错,是他没锁好车库。”


《春天不是读书天》是一部经典的青春幻想电影,马修·布罗德里克饰演的电影同名主角费里斯成为了懒散捣蛋一代人的典型代表。


《春天不是读书天》揭了80年代的伤疤(当然是以尽可能最好的方式),探索了从懵懂年少步入成年过程中的迷惘,让所有观影者都梦想体验一把翘课逃学、忽视父母、豪车在手的生活。


《少年时代》(2014)


“我当然屁都不懂。其他人也一样,好吗?你要知道,我们都不过是即兴发挥而已。”


理查德·林克莱特执导的这部深刻抑或矫情(各有各感)的成长大作片长166分钟,实时拍摄主人公成长经历12年,每一年剧组都重聚续拍,这一点为人们津津乐道。


《少年时代》记录了一个年轻人从幼儿期到步入大学第一天的人生历程(影片因此得名),或许有人会觉得该片过于细碎、严肃,但不可否认,它是对一个人正常成长过程中经受磨炼的述写,深情而又真实。


《早餐俱乐部》(1985)


“我们所有人都挺怪异的。有些人更善于掩藏,仅此而已。”


别搞错, 《早餐俱乐部》并不是要人排队排到天荒地老的那种新潮早餐场所,而是人们普遍认为的中学题材佳片,至今仍是绝对的经典。


该片讲述了五个来自学校不同群体的青少年一起被罚周六假期一早到校学习的故事。现在看来感伤可能有点儿过于明显,但其恰到好处的喜剧节奏和不同寻常的角色发展让该片免于落入滥情的俗套。


《怒火青春》(1995)

1-211214091003X2.jpg

“世界是我们的。”


这部法国经典影片堪称拍得美到极致的电影之一。该片展示了生活在法国低贱贫民区的无聊、迷失、倦怠的青年群体,一经上映便引发了广泛的社会讨论。


影片的主题或许残酷,但经典青春电影的基本要素一应俱全:友谊受到的严峻挑战、对冒险与逃脱的渴望,以及结尾……


《死亡幻觉》(2001)


“别担心,你成功逃离了。”


《死亡幻觉》是一部烧脑科幻电影,仅拍摄了28天,预算380万美金。该片令杰克·吉伦哈尔一举成名,他在片中饰演了一位与虚实难辨的末日启示兔为友的青少年……没错,确实有点儿怪。


虽然该片票房惨败,但也因死亡、抑郁、平行宇宙等富有挑战性的主题而收获了一批狂热粉丝。该片尤为适合喜欢存在哲学、自视甚高的观众。
