Storyline

One night at a friend's house party, a somewhat confident Dave meets a cool and artistic girl named Aubrey. She helps him with his romantic feelings for Jane. They talk about Dave's feelings, and he believes he should tell Jane how he feels. They soon get interrupted by the cops showing up, but decide to walk home together. As the weekend begins, the new friends start to hang out, as well as discuss their relationship... And their virginity. Dave becomes more and more interested in Aubrey, and she reciprocates. Even though she is involved with Roni (her soon to be ex), she has trouble denying her true feelings for Dave. There is one problem, however, Dave is going off to college in another city. Aubrey still has one year left of high school. Will they be able to handle a long distance relationship? Is their love strong enough? Or will Dave chose Jane, the girl of his dreams instead.

Dave Hodgman: Jane, Janie, Lately I've been feeling like there's so much noise, ya know? uh so much static. all these voices competing for attention. teachers, parents, magazines. what's in, what's out, who's cool, who's not cool enough... and it's like all this shit gets so loud I feel like I cant even hear myself think. I just want to get in my car and drive... but then I see you, I see you across the hall leaning against your locker... in that jacket that you love so much... and the way you tuck your hair...

Awesome
24 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

I thought this movie handled teenage romance, chemistry, nervousness, perhaps actual first time sex, really well. If it's truly the first time for both kids..it can be weird and confusing. I especially enjoyed the music and can't find a soundtrack. :( I thought the characters were original. The conversation between the 3 guys was not untypical of what I had with my buddies back in the day...long ago. The one scene where the guy yells back at them "what's wrong with you assholes..." wasn't really a necessary scene. It appeared the director just forgot to drop that on the floor. However, it would have been nice to have seen a little more interaction between Dave and Aubrey..like the theories he talked about and the discussions he was referring to. Still I'm 52 and I watched it with my teenagers and we all loved it.
