Beyond Clueless
  • Year2014
  • Duration88 min

In the decade following the breakout success of 1995's Clueless, Hollywood made hundreds of movies exploring the teenage psyche. Most were set in the drama-rich landscape of the American high school, complete with jocks and cheerleaders, freaks and geeks – and countless sub cliques in between. In this stylish and confident feature debut, British film critic Charlie Lyne takes us deep into the psyche of the teenage soul, exploring themes of alienation and loss of self, and scouring the often amusing myriad of emotional tempests that dominate the teenage years. Cult teen star Fairuza Balk narrates a script that is part adolescent fever dream, part roving visual essay as it takes us through more than two hundred teen films - with plenty of now fully-fledged Hollywood stars to spot along the way. Fully funded by Kickstarter, with a dreamy original score by acclaimed pop duo Summer Camp, this is a filmic voyage you won't want to miss.
