That changes when the brothers Robbie (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Tom come to their school in the new school year. Georgia wants to catch Robbie. To do this, however, she must first learn to kiss properly, with the tongue, of course. Peter (Liam Hess) should help her with this. However, everything is getting out of hand: While Georgia is developing into a natural talent, Peter can no longer get enough of her. That wasn’t the plan and leads to misunderstandings with Robbie.

That changes when he meets the exchange student Grace (Lili Reinhart – known from the popular teen series “Riverdale”), who works with him on the school newspaper. He falls head over heels in love with her – or rather with the idea he has of her?
8. Summer ’03 (2018):
In this teen comedy, 16-year-old Jamie, played by Joey King (“The Kissing Booth”), has to deal not only with puberty and high school, but above all with the death of her grandmother Dotty. Before she passed away, dear grandma did not even think about taking her secrets with her to the grave. Her whole family is now trying to come to terms with her revelations.

7. Good Kids (2016):
In this entertaining high school comedy starring Zoey Deutch (“Set It Up”), four students Andy (Nicholas Braun), Spice (Israel Broussard), Lion (Mateo Arias) and Nora (Zoey Deutch) want it the summer before college let loose. Because in high school they were too good. Much too good! That needs to change. The motto for the summer after graduation is therefore: try everything that is possible!
6. Mid90s (2018):
This highly acclaimed coming-of-age film is the directorial debut of actor Jonah Hill. The focus is on 13-year-old Stevie (Sunny Suljic), who discovered his passion for skateboarding in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s. He makes friends in a group of skaters. But his new circle of friends leads to a conflict with his mother, who doesn’t understand what skating means to him.
5. Wild Child (2008):
16-year-old Poppy Moore, played by Emma Roberts (Julia’s niece), is a wealthy teenage brat who takes her dad’s last nerve. She goes the extra mile with an excessive party. Daddy puts the naughty daughter in an elite boarding school in distant England. There Poppy continues to bitch unabashedly and tries to force an expulsion through her impossible behavior. But she did the math without the patient director. But then Poppy still takes a liking to England – or to be more precise: Freddie (Alex Pettyfer), the director’s son. This makes her unpopular not only with the headmistress, but also with the scheming head girl Harriet (Georgia King), who also has an eye on Freddie.
4. Submarine (2010):
In this dramedy with Craig Roberts, who can also be seen in the coming-of-age series “Red Oaks” on Amazon Prime, the 15-year-old teenager Oliver Tate has to struggle with an age-typical discrepancy between self-image and external image: he himself considers himself particularly intelligent, poetically gifted and also quite popular. The reality does not look so rosy, of course, but at least he manages to win the heart of his classmate Jordana (Yasmin Paige) – an important milestone in his master plan to lose his virginity. But there is hardly a couple who have distracting problems to deal with in the families of the two new lovers.
3. It’s a Boy Girl Thing (2006):
In the body switch comedy, the two neighbors Woody Deane (Kevin Zegers) and Nell Bedworth (Samaire Armstrong) swap bodies: The good, but not necessarily most popular student Nell wakes up one morning in the body of the popular football player Woody. They both go to the same high school but hate each other. But now Nell and Woody have to pull themselves together to get out of this mysterious misery again. In doing so, they get to know the life of the other (gender) the hard way – and ultimately how to respect each other.
2. She’s the Man – Totally My Type! (2006):
This time only roles are swapped: This high school dramedy is loosely based on the play “What you want” by William Shakespeare: Viola (Amanda Bynes) wants to play soccer, which her mother doesn’t like at all. In addition, the girls’ team at the high school is disbanded. The boys reject it. But where there is a will, there is also a way: When her twin brother leaves for London for two weeks, she takes the chance to take his position. The role reversal leads directly to the boys’ team and thus inevitably leads to some romantic confusions.
1. Heathers (1988):
Finally, another kind of cult high school love story with Christian Slater, Winona Ryder and Shannen Doherty: At Westerburg High, the elite “Heathers” set the tone. The snooty clique led by Heather Duke (Doherty) and her two friends of the same name harass their classmates. Veronica Sawyer (Ryder) also belongs to the clique, but she is only there for prestige reasons. When she meets the rebellious outsider JD (Slater), the two forge a diabolical plan to get rid of Heather # 1 for good.
