The Kids Stay in the Picture
Youve met them before, and you may have even loathed them in high school: the nerd, the jock, the popular girl, and the quirky/arty chick. But you havent met the versions of these 10th-grade archetypes who populate Nanette Burnsteins lately very much admired new documentary, American Teen. Burnstein, whose The Kid Stays in the Picture made waves a few years back, has dug deeper into her pop culture-riddled psyche and come up with a small story filled with big personalities.
The movie has turned up as a favorite on the national film festival scene, a fact not lost on the Phoenix Film Society, which screens the film.
