The Best Coming-of-Age Movies Streaming Right Now



The Sandlot

Whether you’re escaping the heat or escaping the crowds, summertime calls for getting lost in film’s best coming-of-age stories.

Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime and Showtime are all streaming the very best of the genre, reminding us of a time when life felt a bit more simple, but seemed oh-so complicated at the same time. Netflix has mid-aughts romp “Superbad,” while you can watch its spiritual sister “Booksmart” over on Hulu. Even Disney Plus’ catalogue, brimming with Disney Channel Originals, has a number of movies that dive into the complexity of fledgling adolescence, even when that sometimes means becoming a merman, like in “Thirteenth Year.”
