The best days of our lives, so they said. Or maybe not.
This summer another generation of seniors looks back at those four years of transition from budding adults to gangly misfits, wistfully recalling the sadistic teachers, the overbearing bullies, the first bloom of true love and persistent acne. We miss it, but luckily there’s a glut of movies that fill the masochistic need to relive the pain and exhilaration. Your assignment – and yes it’s the same one from a few weeks ago that was unavoidably postponed – is to share with us your favorite high school movies.The top five will be posted on June 16. Put your picks in the comment section or send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
