Empire Records is a movie that came out in 1995 and is about a group of teenagers who work in a record store, their interaction with each other and customers, and their ultimate goal of saving the record store from becoming bought out by a chain. There are many notable names in this movie such as Rory Cochrane, Debi Mazar, Robin Tunney, Renee Zellweger, Ethan Embry, and Liv Tyler, and all add so much to the movie. I find this movie to epitomize teenage culture, as it includes representatives from many different high school cliques. It actually reminds me of The Breakfast Club in that respect, but a 90's version of it. For example, there's the girl who sleeps around, the girl who studies all the time and wants everything perfect, the guy going to art school, the guy who is a bit of an outsider, the guy who goes against the law, and so man more. I think this film definitely took a picture of teenage culture from the 90's, and is such a good movie even without that.
