On the surface it seems harmless enough -- camera crews follow a group of small-town students during their senior year of high school for a film project designed to capture the transitional moments between childhood and adulthood. The film that sparked a bidding war after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January -- and earned Burstein honors for directing -- also has been criticized as too glossy and too willfully mainstream. Some question its authenticity. For this project, Burstein said she set her sights on capturing the rituals of the teenage years as honestly as possible. Some things had changed, but the real emotional core of what you go through at that age very much stays the same. For the film, Burstein trained her lens on the small town of Warsaw, Ind. She whittled her focus to five subjects, each of whom fits into sharply defined archetypes -- the jock, the rebel, the queen bee, the geek and the hunk. Along the way there are breakups, makeups, falling-outs and hook-ups, successes and failures both big and small and a feeling that the emotional skirmishes of being young do matter.

Paramount Vantage has given them their own conference room in Hollywood, and the five teens have taken up every spare nook and cranny, sorting out their PR junket laundry, blogging on their laptops and reviewing their publicity schedules. But with just a quiet signal from their publicist, they obediently extract themselves from the mess and assemble on the one clean couch left in the corner of the room. They're practically vets now, but just two years ago, they were unknown adolescents from Warsaw Community High School in rural Indiana. Now as Sundance stars, they're immortalized, thanks to the documentary hit American Teen www. Courtesy of Sundance Film Festival. In it Burstein captures the senior year of these high school students with a fresh vibe that reviewers tend to compare to a real-life Breakfast Club -and deservedly. And its subjects, planned or not, fit the role so well that the first promo poster for the film imitated the famous teen flick, with basketball star Colin as the "Jock," his teammate Mitch as the "Heartthrob," well-off Megan as the "Princess," video gamer Jake as the "Geek" and artist Hannah as the "Rebel. But even the most cynical critic will writhe in agony over the real-life dramas of these teens: Will he make that basket and get his college scholarship? What will happen when the outcast shows up at the cool kids party?
