Class of 2020! This year has certainly been anything but normal, especially for graduates, but there are still a few things you can do to give yourself at least a little bit of normalcy during this time. You may not get to walk across the stage to accept your diploma, but there are quite a few movies about graduation on Amazon Prime Video that you can live vicariously through.

Graduation is a big deal, whether you're finishing up high school, or completing your hard-earned degree. Every single person has a totally different experience while in school, and the movies on this list reflect that. Some people spent their time focusing solely on their academic achievements and others pursued post-secondary strictly so they could party!

Even if you yourself won't be graduating this year, it's still a great time to take a walk down memory lane and re-live the experiences of your younger days through these beloved movies.
