i recently watched a movie “The World’s Best Prom” about the 2000 senior prom in Racine, Wisconsin. i thought it was excellent, very real, and showed a rare true positive side of the kids of today. compared to shows like ‘my super sweet 16’ and the rest of that bratty nonsense, most of these kids were thoughtful and decent. they all had dreams and expectations and it was great to see how the reality of the event went down.
it may have been extra interesting to me because i just went to racine for a kitshicker wedding this summer, as the lovely bride and a kitshicking bridesmaid hailed from that very town, though they graduated the year before this documentary was made.
i recommend netflixing this documentary.
