Abstract:

In their teen years, queer adolescents confront a powerful heterosexual regime when trying to fulfill their own desires, love, and intimacy in a hostile cultural sphere that often oppresses and condemns their sexual difference through daily mental and physical abuse. Hence, their resistance is never a "rebel without a cause". New queer adolescence films of the 1990s and early 2000 show a positive attitude in their representation of same-sex attraction, romance, intercourse, difficulties and confrontations with homophobia in the adolescent's family, school, neighborhood, and community. This article focuses on the controversial politics of the queer body, the eroticization of physical inequality, and the melodramatic coming-out of agonized protagonists in Beautiful Thing (Hettie MacDonald, UK 1995), Edge of Seventeen (David Moreton, USA 1998), Get Real (Simon Shore, UK / South Africa 1998), The Truth about Jane (Lee Rose, USA 2000), and Francois Ozon's Une Robe d'Ete (A Summer Dress, France 1996).
