The Myth of the American Sleepover
£10 / £8 concessions / £7 ICA Members
A hit at the 2010 Cannes and SXSW Film Festivals, this charming, youthful American Indie focuses on four teenagers living in the suburbs of Detroit, each looking for love and adventure on the last weekend of the Summer, each relishing their final days of freedom before the school year starts. Featuring astonishingly naturalistic performances from an attractive cast of newcomers all making their feature film debuts, the film is a lovingly observed tribute to the joys and heartbreaks of late adolescence in the tradition of Richard Linklater, but with a visual flair very much its own.
Dir. David Robert Mitchell, US 2010, 93 mins.
Cast. Claire Sloma, Marlon Morton, Amanda Bauer.
