    Romeo and Juilet (1996 version) (12)


    "Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue. The gun-toting members of the families wage a vicious war on the streets as the star-crossed lovers meet their tragic destiny" - IMDb

    Because it's Shakespeare :heart: It was one of my GCSE texts and I've loved it ever since.

    Mulan (i dunno if its a u or a pg cause imdb doesnt say)

    http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi3411542297/?ref_=tt_ov_vi

    To save her father from death in the army, a Chinese maiden secretly goes in his place and becomes one of China's greatest heroes in the process.

    I'm ok with you nominating it if you can give me a good reason why it's within the theme.

    When we do the voting page I'll put a warning by it, but the big mods and film club run on the understanding that no-one has to watch both films, or any of the films, to be able to join in, and also that Film Club isn't as safe as the support areas of the website.

    because Google said so.

    I haven't seen the film, but I've read the book and it draws on love and tragedy whilst coming of age. It's focused around the lives (and deaths) of the siblings in one family, through the eyes of love struck, verging on obsessed teenage boys, but doesn't follow the traditional blossoming into something amazing, ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan. It's something within the theme but different.

    So.

    The Virgin Suicides. (15)

    "A group of male friends become obsessed with a group of mysterious sisters who are sheltered by their strict, religious parents after one of them commits suicide." - IMDb

    Stand by me! I love that film!

    The Breakfast Club (15)

    Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.

    Reason for nominating: It always comes up on lists of coming-of-age films (and it's cited a lot in Pitch Perfect) but I've never seen it.
