14-year-old homebody Jamie is an old soul, happier perusing classic cookbooks than being on a football field. The one thing, however, that gets him outside is the annual camping trip with his older brother Will and his favourite cousin Allie. When Allie’s new boyfriend Dan joins the group, prescriptive Jamie finds himself inexplicably drawn to Dan’s easygoing charm.

Favouring moments of quiet poignancy over familiar teen-movie melodramatics, Corey Sherman’s witty and warm-hearted directorial debut is an uncommonly relatable coming-of age tale, driven by a star-making performance from the brilliant Isaac Krasner as a young man trying to make sense of who he is, both inside and out.
