18 Movies and Shows for Families with Older Teens and College Students

From the 1983 Warner Brothers film “Local Hero”

One of my students told me recently he grieves the many losses he’s facing as the last part of his senior year is spent isolated from his friends. In the next moment he said: “I have to admit I’m enjoying spending more time with my family.” A teenager admitting time with his loved ones is sustaining his hurting heart is an unexpected upside to a time filled with woe.
