I'll 2nd the Karate Kid, I thought about nominating it, but I wasn't really sure it had enough angst

Arman, I'm pretty sure the Requiem for a Dream crew are not teens...ditto Less Than Zero though it has been quite a while since I've seen it

Not sure what all would count, so just one nom:

The Rules of Attraction


I second:

Heathers
Saved!
Battle Royale
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Note that I didn't second my favorite film of all time, Requiem, because I'm pretty sure they're not teens.
