About this movie

'Soundtrack to Sixteen' is a coming-of-age film about two anxious teens growing up in London in the 2000s. Maisy is self-conscious and constantly overanalysing. She is obsessed with having her first kiss this year, before she turns seventeen, but stalking the boy next door doesn't seem to be working. Meanwhile Ben, a boy from a nearby school, is happy being a nerd and thinking he's better than everyone else until his grades start plummeting. For the first time he must come face-to-face with the idea that he might, in fact, be average. When the two meet each other on the night bus things get even more confusing for them as they attempt to navigate their first potential romance under the stress of exams that will define their future.

A great film that really reminds me of what it was like to be 16 and growing up awkwardly! Perfect snuggle on the sofa and reminisce film, although not always great to recall some of the cringy moments of being a teenager! The directors have done other films too, I think, will be checking them out.

"Soundtrack to Sixteen" is a really wonderful film! I loved the innocence behind it, and the relationships between each character are beautifully real and lovely to watch. Would highly recommend for its wit and for a trip back to your teenage years.
