The Myth of the American Sleepover Trailer has premiered. David Robert Mitchell‘s The Myth of the American Sleepover (2010) movie trailer stars Jade Ramsey, Amy Seimetz, Nikita Ramsey, Amanda Bauer, and Jean Louise O’Sullivan. The Myth of the American Sleepover plot synopsis: “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.”
Half way through this movie trailer I loved what I was seeing. The Myth of the American Sleepover (2010) is certainly not a teen comedy (e.g. American Pie) but something real like Kids, Thirteen, (which we reviewed here: Film Review: Thirteen) or Blacktino. This film seems to take its time with the interactions between its characters.
First love, young love. Those days when it feels as if you’re right on the brink of some flashpoint moment end up burned into your brain. Or the idea of those days is burned in, at least, and that’s what ends up being part of the limitless energy that powers cinema. The Myth of the American Sleepover runs entirely on that energy as it follows a handful of kids on the cusp of adulthood as they try to spark a connection on the last weekend of summer.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
The Myth of the American Sleepover also stars Claire Sloma, Hali Lula Hudson, Brett Jacobsen, Melanie Leanne Miller, Alpha Takahashi, Louis Yuen, and Cat Navarro.
