What Are Some Great Films That Have Showed the Media Portrayal of Adolescents With Their Families?

Question by Lenetta: What are some great films that have showed the media portrayal of adolescents with their families?
I am taking a Psychology course on Adolescent Development and I just wanted some opinions on films that successfully portray adolescents and their families (stereotypes, misconceptions, and all). There are so many, I know, but I can’t even think of any.

12 and Holding, Thirteen, Bully (2001), and the UK Television Program “Skins” just to name a few are perfect examples of troubled Teen life which deals with issues such as Bullying, Drugs and Alcohol, Teen Sexuality, Self Harm, & Eating Disorders. Skins deals with all of these issues within one season so that would be a great place to start. It also shows a pretty good example of conformity and peer pressure in its works. I really hope this is what your looking for and I think these should be more than enough to suffice you :).
