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.

Underrated,very engaging, feel good movie
12 January 2020 | by ashrafulhaqshawonSee all my reviews

I dont like write big reviews so I'll keep it Short...This movie has almost all the element what a teen romantic movie should have...The movie starts with a crazy party where...A cute but smart girl meets an unknown almost graduated high school boy outside the party cause Both of them think that party sucks...And they have this really good, not so cheesy but romantic conversation with each other...and they end up that night on the girls place in an unexpected sleepover which was real romantic to even watch....

Plus this movie surprisingly has some real bold scenes kept in pg-13 ratings...Just Don't expect something too dramatic or too big incidences and you will get something real good ...
