FIRST GIRL I LOVED
October 14, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
FIRST GIRL I LOVED
directed by Kerem Sanga
Seventeen-year-old Anne just fell in love with Sasha, the most popular girl at her Los Angeles public high school. But when Anne tells her best friend Clifton, he does his best to get in the way. Clifton, see, has always harbored a not-so-secret crush on Anne.
The best after-school-special we are to present this year, FIRST GIRL I LOVED is pleasurably smart, as lively and funny as it can be heartbreaking. Anne’s cleverness and her efforts at confidence doesn’t make her coming out any less messy or painful or complicated. But FIRST GIRL I LOVED takes these high school kids seriously and enjoys the company of these emerging adults as they risk — or don’t risk — new versions of themselves.
A satisfyingly winning film grounded by a great performance by Dylan Gelula, otherwise of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. With Deadpool’s Brianna Hildebrand and a cameo by Cameron Esposito!
