Storyline

At Phoenix Progressive School, where everyone tries to outdo each other with creative self-expression, 16-year-old Molly Maxwell (Lola Tash) would rather be invisible than risk revealing herself as completely ordinary. When her young, handsome, disillusioned English teacher (Charlie Carrick) enters the picture and allows her to just be herself, Molly is suddenly able to flourish. As their student-teacher bond becomes more intimate, she begins putting herself on the line in unexpected ways while pursuing what she wants. But with each awkward, beautiful step towards an impossible romance, Molly risks alienating everyone she loves. Written by Molly Maxwell

A sweet indie film with surprisingly fine craftsmanship. Charlie Carrick will be rising for sure!
19 April 2013 | by qz1See all my reviews

What a surprising treat! I had a spontaneous moment today and went to watch this movie at Carlton. Having no idea what the movie is about walking in, I may have been a bit of an outsider to the sold-out screening where people were fighting for a seat and adding chairs all along the aisle. I knew then that I was going to get my money's worth. And sure I did. I was literally stunned by its artistic interpretation of adolescent, alienation, and pure innocent love. The Q&A session was hilarious, and my gosh, Charlie Carrick is gorgeous! A rising star indeed. Go buy the ticket, and I promise you that you won't be disappointed.
