12 Indie Movies All Girls Should Watch This Summer

500 Days of Summer
Fox Searchlight

Summer is the best time to be outside, but on a rainy summer day there's nothing better than a movie marathon. Instead of the latest blockbuster, though, you should consider watching an indie film. They're often funnier, more edgy and more dramatic than films that have been produced by big name production companies.

Indie movies are also great to learn life lessons from, since they're usually about average people figuring out average problems in an interesting way.

Here are 12 indie movies that all girls should watch this summer.

The Virgin Suicides

The Virgin Suicides

An oldie but goodie, this movie features a young Kirsten Dunst and an intriguing plot: it follows the doomed lives of the 5 Lisbon sisters in a suburban neighborhood, and the story is told by the boys in the neighborhood.

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine is a dramedy about the Hoover family who end up driving across the country to get their slightly chubby daughter to a pageant, with endless hijinks along the way.

Adventureland

Adventureland

Adventureland is the perfect movie for all recent college graduates. James is a college graduate in the '80s forced to work at a theme park when his parents tell him they can't pay for his Euro-trip. Of course, he falls in love with Kristen Stewart.
