Plot & Details
An official selection of Cannes Critics Week and winner of the Special Jury Prize at SXSW, 'The Myth of the American Sleepover' is a youthful and tender coming-of-age drama from first-time writer/director David Robert Mitchell. In the tradition of free-wheeling tributes to adolescence like '[#Dazed & Confused,' the film follows four young people (a cast of brilliant young newcomers in their feature film debuts) on the last night of summer -- their final night of freedom before the new school year starts. The teenagers cross paths as they explore the suburban wonderland they inhabit in search of love and adventure -- chasing first kisses, elusive crushes, popularity and parties -- and discover the quiet moments that will later resonate as the best in their youth.
