From first-time writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes The Myth of the American Sleepover, a poignant and tender coming-of-age drama. It's the last night of summer and Maggie, Rob, Claudia, Scott and Beth are looking for love and adventure. As they explore the suburban wonderland they inhabit their paths cross and intersect with the lives of the other teenagers in their town.
The teenagers in Mitchell's world may be lost and a little confused, but ultimately they come to deeper realisations about the search for human connections. Inspired by Mitchell's experiences growing up in Michigan, the film is set amidst the sprawling neighbourhood blocks, lakes and abandoned factories of suburban Detroit. The result is an elegantly rendered portrait of summertime adolescence and a fresh take on the teen genre. This life-affirming and truthful tale is brought to life by a cast of young attractive newcomers, which also includes British actor twins Nikita and Jade Ramsey.
The Myth of the American Sleepover celebrated its world premiere at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize, and was an Official Selection at Cannes Critics Week.
