This innovative teen comedy follows Seth and Evan during their final weeks together before the start of college forces them to go their separate ways. Despite the typical teenage-boy tropes (the ultimate party, unrequited love) the film manages to stay fresh. Directed by Greg Mottola and produced by Judd Apatow maybe it’s the film’s pedigree that enables it to raise the bar of an otherwise tired genre. While the classic Apatow flavour means it still has one foot planted firmly in the comedy gutter, it’s the sweet and sensitive ‘bromance’ that makes it far more than the average teen farce.
The screening is preceded by short film The Strange Ones (14m) directed by Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein.
This screening will be introduced by Kat Hughes whose PhD thesis explores queer subtext in contemporary film representations of teenagers.
