RED Hearts are guest posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage girls in America write on what fires up their lives today. Today’s RED Hearts post is from RED editor Amy Goldwasser, in NYC, who writes about a new, captivating documentary:
Teenage strikes just the right balance between the tragedy and, at times, the sheer joy and exhilaration of being a teenager. I could probably have watched the birth of swing and the jitterbugs (noun, as in people who jitterbug) with a grin for the full hour and 20 minutes of the film. And the spot-on soundtrack, by Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter) is sparkling and sharp and World of Tomorrow, underlined by a simultaneous concern about the future and the terror of that place between childhood and adulthood, the dream -- and nightmare -- of growing up.
