A young woman finds her reputation is at stake when she refuses to date a charming bully in this intelligent teen drama from Australia. Xandrie (Adelaide Clemens) is a smart, pretty girl who is attending an exclusive private school favored by wealthy, upper-class families. Xandrie is infatuated with Darren (Oliver Ackland), a handsome but quiet boy with an interest in computers, but Darren's step-brother Zack (Alex Russell), who is at the top of the school status ladder, has his eye on her. Zach is used to getting what he wants, often with the help of his loyal sidekicks Brook (T.J. Power) and Jonathan (Tom Stokes), and when Xandrie rejects his advances, he doesn't take it well. Soon Xandrie finds herself the target of a campaign of rumors and vicious gossip, largely spread through online social networking, and the war of words takes an especially ugly turn that could leave Xandrie scarred for life and turn Darren against Zack. Wasted On The Young was the first feature film from writer and director Ben C. Lucas.
