George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
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.Written by
During the movie night while Aubrey is talking to Dave she says that her dream is to travel and she wants so bad to "go out there again" . In reality Britt Robertson (the actress playing Aubrey) has admitted in an interview that she hates travelling and she prefers staying at home. See more »
In the final scene where Aubrey decides to run back to Dave, who is still at his car, you see her drop her bag to the ground to make out with him. In the next scene however, they change the camera angle of them making out, and the book-bag is nowhere to be seen. See more »
I go back quite aways to A Summer Place and Parish,yet even as a senior citizen I found The First Time to be a refreshingly honest and well acted film highlighted by the performance of Britt Robertson, a young actress who unfortunately is in the shade of Jennifer Lawrence and Ellen Page...yet I hope she can find he way into the sun because she has a lot to offer.
The film, although light hearted, doesn't deal in mind numbing clichés. It is about the real emotions of modern high school kids, who you realize aren't that much different from the kids of my generation.
It's nice to see a film where kids actually fall deeply for each other rather than just fleeting sexual attraction.
