Peer pressure is the influence of a social group on an individual. Adolescents feel social pressure to conform to the group of peers with whom they socialize.

The purpose of this study is to describe the peer pressures that are faced by the main character as shown in the movie, the peer pressures’ influences on teenagers’ self identities, and to explain the impacts of peer pressures’ influences on teenager’s lives. In discussing the problem in this final project, I used a descriptive qualitative research method since the data were in form of written words and they were descriptively analyzed.
