Angst is the most important, eye-opening documentary you will see this year. Through first-hand accounts and expert commentary, the film leads you with great care through the many facets of teen anxiety, a massive, misunderstood and rapidly growing cultural epidemic. The teenagers in the film describe their suffering with stunning openness, grace and courage. The filmmakers capture what so many young people are suffering in these complicated days: the bullying, perfectionism, panic, obsession, and too often, hopelessness.
Angst is surprisingly cathartic and ends with the notes of hope we so desperately need. Whether you are a teenager, parent, educator or a mental health professional, you simply need to see this movie, and soon. And every school needs to screen this film. It’s that important.
