About the film:
The Teenage Textbook Movie (1998)
Directed by Philip Lim
Starring Melody Chen, Caleb Goh, Lim Hwee Sze, Steven Lim

Adapted from Adrian Tan’s bestselling novel, The Teenage Textbook, the film follows the life of student Mui Ee (Melody Chen) and her best friend Sissy Song (Lim Hwee Sze) at the fictitious Paya Lebar Junior College, where she encounters boys and experiences first love for the first time.

The Teenage Textbook Movie topped the Singapore box-office for four weeks following its release in 1998. The soundtrack featured all-Singaporean music, presenting the songs of singers like Ger (My Special Angel) and John Klass (Falling in Love), a first for English-language Singapore films.
