Antoine Doinel is a 14-year old Parisian whose parents do not show much interest in him. He skips school to go to the movies or play with his friends. He will discover his mother has a lover, steal a typewriter, be suspended from school, all to conceal his suffering. (1959, 99 mins, dir. Francois Truffaut, with Jean-Pierre Leaud, French with English subtitles) (#319)
