The press release sums it up thusly:
I plan to attend the screening, but won't be able to review the film until its theatrical release sometime late this summer.
AMERICAN TEEN is the heartbreaking and hilarious Sundance hit that follows the lives of four teenagers- a jock, the popular girl, the artsy girl and the geek – in one small town in Indiana through their senior year of high school.
We see the insecurities, the cliques, the jealousies, the first loves and heartbreaks, and the struggle to make profound decisions about the future. Filming daily for ten months, filmmaker Nanette Burstein (ON THE ROPES, THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE) developed a deep understanding of her subjects. The result is a film that goes beyond the enduring stereotypes of high school to render complex young people trying to find their way into adulthood.
I'm really looking forward to this one - I've heard some very good things, and Burstein's The Kid Stays in the Picture was a big critical success, so I'm hoping this one lives up to my expectations.
Burstein will also be present at the screening for a Q&A session after the film and will be available for interviews.
