This week's theme at Wandering Through the Shelves is about the new kids at school. I never had to be that kid. Sure, I started schools for the first time, but never alone. I never had to move to a new city or attend a new school right in the middle of everything. These kids had to in some capacity
1) Morris from America
Morris is an American living in Germany where his father takes a job. He dreams of being a rapper but has trouble fitting in. I really loved this movie and seeing a different side of Craig Robinson.
2) The Perks of Being a Wallflower
So Charlie doesn't technically qualify as being a new kid, seeing as he did know some of his classmates, but I couldn't resist using him. Without his best friend, and a sister that ignores him, he was truly alone until Patrick and Sam took him in.
3) Au Revoir les Enfants
Unlike Morris and Charlie who just have trouble fitting in, Jean is a new kid at a French boarding school because he's hiding from Nazis. This is one of my favorite films to come from the Blind Spot series. It's also up there with one of my favorite French films of all time.
