A Film of Myself: My Favourite Female Coming of Age Films

See what I did in the title? While I related plenty to the Ferris Buellers and William Millers of the film world, here are some films I want to force-feed teen girls the world over.

Quite literally, this will be a list of films with intriguing female leads (teens to twentysomethings). I will only include films that get my personal stamp of approval or that are on my watchlist - these are films I will show my nieces as they grow older.
