Coming of Age and Oldies Inspired Films From Modern Day
As a big fan and collector of oldies music of the 1950s and 1960s, I tend to gravitate towards films that bring back that era to life. I left out the biopics outside of a couple as they fit their own genre and often are misleading and have incorrect information which drives me bonkers. A lot of the films seem to have come from the 80s and early 90s after the classics American Graffiti and The Wanderers started it back in the 70s (not a fan of Grease but many are, so it's here). Many are coming of age, some just pure rock 'n roll of Early Beatles before they were known, or DJ Alan Freed who coined the term "rock 'n roll". There are others that feature parts of being young in the 50s and early-mid 60s at some point to where characters are older later on, or go back and forth, however, most are coming of age. If you are a fan of those films, this small but effective list may interest you.
