Ten Unconventional Coming-Of-Age Movies You Should Check Out

Coming-of-age movies are supposed to have relatable characters that make us compare what they're going through in the film to our own lives, but that rarely happens when you're a weirdo.

Growing up as one of the odd ducks in the pond made me relate more to movies like Harold and Maude, Time Bandits and Quadrophenia than the traditional Hollywood fare, so Submarine by Ben Stiller and Richard Ayoade was right up my alley.

Stand By Me is a classic coming-of-age movie and should definitely stay in the rotation for life, but back in 2012 Wes Anderson gave us a new addition that appeals to the offbeat- Moonrise Kingdom.

And lastly, if you're looking for comedy, poignancy and a slice of blue collar life set in North London then you've gotta check out Mike Leigh's fantastic funky family film from 1991 called Life Is Sweet.
