Young Brit Douglas Booth might be making Miley Cyrus "Lol" as a love interest in her upcoming film, but there won't be much laughing in the next film he's attached to. "Life at These Speeds," which will costar Billy Crudup, is an inspirational tale of one teen who turns his personal demons into amazing success as a long-distance runner.
The story is based on the young adult novel by Jeremy Jackson about a popular 8th grader, Kevin, whose random decision to ride home with his parents instead of taking the school van home from a track meet inadvertently saves his life. When the van takes a nosedive into a river, all of his teammates are killed, including his best friend.
Naturally, Kevin is devastated by grief and guilt, and he attempts to start his life over at a different high school. The only thing that really saves him, though, is running. »
