The trailer for Sundance darling American Teen (from the director of The Kid Stays in the Picture), a critically acclaimed documentary about an Indiana high school, is now online (watch it after the jump). 

As you can see from the picture above, it’s billing itself as a real-life Breakfast Club. But judging by the popular-guy-dates-girl-who-paints plotline, it looks more like a real-life 16 Candles.  Or maybe it’s like a real-life High School Musical without the singing and the queer stuff.  

Either way, they bill one guy as "The Geek" at the beginning of the trailer, but by the end they show him holding hands with a girl.  What the fuck, man, where I’m from that was like third base.
