Trailer of the Week: Rebellion Never Gets Old in Matt Wolf's 'Teenage'

Matt Wolf’s documentary filmTeenage,” narrated by the ever-popular Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Ben Wishaw (“Skyfall”) explores a world before Justin Bieber and Facebook; the film, which screened at the the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival takes a look at adolescence at the start of the 20th century.

In this trailer we are given snapshots of 1900 youth and see the lasting effects that changing labor laws, flapper culture and World War II had on teens at the time. Bradford Cox, lead singer of Indie bands “Deerhunter” and “Atlas Sound” scores. It’s a beautiful, quick-paced montage that analyzes our formative years before people even know that our formative years was something worth understanding. 
Executive Produced by Jason Schwartzman, “Teenage” is slated for a limited March 14th release.
