Looking for a French film for kids or teens? Le Nouveau might just be the movie for you, for its smart and funny approach to the subject of not fitting in as a kid. Every month TV5MONDE USA offers a selection of the best French movies for children.

After transferring to a new school, Benoit throws a party for his whole class to try and fit in. When only three kids show up, this group of misfits decides they’ll work together to become the new popular group in school.

Parents, you’ve already (re)watched all of the Disney classics from Fantasia to The Lion King, from Aladdin to Coco. Maybe you’re looking for a live action French movie to stream with your kids or young teens. Each month, TV5MONDE USA selects French movies with English subtitles suited for kids from age 4 to 18! France has a long tradition of making good features (animated or not) for kids that aren’t just for pure entertainment purposes, but as a way for them to learn about the world around us, opening up their eyes to things without being too preachy. This describes Le Nouveau. This heartwarming story of a middle schooler transferring to a new school and befriending a group of outcasts wasn’t a box-office hit despite great reviews. Watching it on TV5MONDE is your chance to give it the audience it deserves. Adults and kids will appreciate the dialogue and the incredible cast of kids.
