Rethinking the Hollywood Teen Movie : Gender, Genre and Identity (Hardcover) (Frances Smith)
About this item
Rethinking the Hollywood Teen Movie is the first academic monograph to consider the aesthetic and narrative potential of this highly popular, yet often overlooked, film genre. Reconsidering tropes such as the male juvenile delinquent figure, the makeover and the teen vampire, the book uses a series of detailed case studies of films like Rebel Without a Cause, Grease, Heathers and Twilight to explore the genre's relation to critical concepts of intersectionality, postfeminism and the posthuman. This book is an innovative overview of the Hollywood teen movie and its construction of teen identity.
