Writing for Popsugar, Sabienna Bowman shares her top movie picks for teens. She writes that Netflix has upped it's game for the teen crowd. There are lots of titles from old favorites to the hottest new movies around. 

5 of Bowman's top picks:

The Kissing Booth
Opposite sex BFFs have a no dating each other rule to preserve the friendship. See how complicated life gets when the guy's brother enters the picture. This movie also has a sequel worth watching.

All the Bright Places
This movie is based on a YA novel. Two teens struggling with mental illness make a pact to see the as many beautiful things as they can in this intense flick.

Definitely not a romance here. In this comedy, desperate teen siblings hatch a plot to rob a train after their mother is jailed.
