The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)
American nineties. A minor Cameron Post was caught in the car during sex with a girl. Her parents are forcing her into conversion therapy with God’s help, which seems to cure homosexuality.

A little later, the “patients” find a pool of blood in the toilet of the center – this encourages Cameron and her new friends to fight against inadequate leadership.
This is a biopic about country singer Blaise Foley, who fell in love like a star, died as a star, and became popular as, in fact, a star – after death. The plot of the film focuses mainly on the failures that Foley suffered much more than victories. Critics call this film one of the best about country music.
Oliver Tate is a smart boy. But all he wants now is to save his parents’ hopeless marriage and have sex until they are sixteen. A classmate, whom Tate is delighted with, first uses it, only to provoke jealousy in the former. When they start a relationship, Tate learns the terrible truth about his mother and is frustrated by his beloved, and then goes through a difficult emotional meat grinder and begins savagery. We recommend watching “Submarine” also because the soundtrack to the film was written by Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys!
Monnrise Kingdom (2012)

The couple decides to move away from the adult world at any cost and runs away as far as they can. Meanwhile, naughty Sam’s guardians refuse, so the price of escape rises. The film features Hollywood bingo, as director Anderson likes: Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, James Norton, Francis McDormand, and others.
The Lake House (2006)

The characters begin correspondence, fall in love with each other, and later it turns out that Alex lives two years earlier than Kate. How is this even possible?
Dead Poets Society (1989)
If you’re impressed with the Truman Show, you’ll be impressed by Peter Weir. John Keating, a new literature teacher, comes to Welton College, which has a strong teaching tradition. With his freedom of thought and teaching methods, he impresses students who have been forced to keep quiet about important things for years. Together they renew the forgotten “Union of Dead Poets”, which radically changes the fate of the pupils.
