Movie Summary

Director:
Craig Johnson (III)
Released:
2011
Rating:
Not Available
At 34, struggling Seattle musician Sam (Mark Duplass, Humpday, The League) finds himself broke, jobless and losing touch with the person he wants to become. When his girlfriend kicks him out, he's forced to crash with his Aunt Sharon (Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, The Fighter) and is reluctantly enlisted to take her teen son, Oliver, and his friend Jake camping. Edgy, funny and honest, Craig Johnson's film follows the trio into the rugged Pacific Northwest as unforeseen revelations and transformations force them to face adulthood. Set to a mesmerizing soundtrack featuring both emerging and established artists including Band of Horses, The Black Keys and Devendra Banhart, TRUE ADOLESCENTS reminds us that sometimes people need to get lost to truly find themselves.

    Glomming conceits and situations from a vast range of similarly themed films, it ambles along in a lethargic, good-natured manner, fitfully amusing but never approaching substantial.
