Earlier this evening I finally had the opportunity to watch Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse, which I enjoyed a lot. I have been reflecting on how my experience of films like these (films with teenage protagonists) has changed with age. Even in my mid-to-late 20s, I would often identify clearly with the teenage protagonists, but over the last few years I have increasingly started identifying with the parents of the protagonists. Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse was no exception to this recent trend.
