growing pains (or the ultimate coming of age movie challenge)

what’s up girls and gays (and...others)! the lovely jenna and i decided to make a coming of age challenge because it’s a god tier genre and it deserves the most rights! here are the rules/guidelines:


ONE
there’s no time restraint/limit - start and finish whenever you please (it’s a pretty long list, so it might take a while). also, the challenge may be completed in any order!

TWO
the idea is that you make a list with films that you haven’t seen for all of the tasks, unless it’s impossible to do so. some of the tasks have links to lists that might be of use when looking for films.

THREE
please tag your reviews/lists with ‘growing pains challenge’ or…
