Juvenile Delinquent

see all genres ›

The problems of the idle youth attracted filmmakers' attentions very early on for luridly exploitative and morally correcting purposes. But the post-WWII birth of the "teenager" as a social concept-slash-"problem" birthed a whole new subgenre of "youth run amuck" movies which appealed to young audiences eager to see themselves on-screen (even in caricatured form).
