Coming-of-age are defined by stories about growing up that explore themes like: sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, sports, war, divorce, religion, depression, punk, drought, graduation, lazy summers, first loves, death, puberty, domineering parents - these are the hazards and catalysts of change. The main persons are often portrayed by children, teens and young adults. Some of those movies might be dark and disturbing, others might be simple and sweet.
