The Myth of the American Sleepover Synopsis: From first-time writer/director David Robert Mitchell’s comes THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER, a beautifully rendered portrait of summertime adolescence and the search for human connections. This story follows four young people 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. While looking for the iconic teenage experience, they discover the quiet moments that will later become a part of their youth they look back on with nostalgia. Inspired by Mitchell’s experience growing up in Michigan, the kids in this poignant and tender coming-of-age drama may be lost, a little confused and full of angst, but ultimately the kids are alright in this life-affirming, truthful and fresh take on the teen genre.
The Myth of the American Sleepover will have its world premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and had its U.S. premiere in March at the SXSW Film Festival and Conference, where it received a special jury prize for Best Ensemble Cast. Watch the trailer and check out more photos below.
