Narrated by cult teen star Fairuza Balk, "Beyond Clueless" is a dizzying journey into the mind, body and soul of the teen movie, as seen through the eyes of over 200 modern coming-of-age classics.
Part adolescent fever dream, part roving visual essay, the film puts Hollywood's high school under the microscope on a quest to lay bare the genre's beating heart. Is The Craft the ultimate teenage survival guide? Can the little-seen Devon Sawa vehicle Idle Hands shine a light on the horrors of pubescence? And what's really going on beneath the skin of EuroTrip?
All will be revealed as "Beyond Clueless" leads viewers through Hollywood's treacherous teen years and out the other side.
