True Adolescents premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in 2009 and was an official entry in several festivals including The Seattle International Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Raindance International Film Festival, and Sidewalk Film Festival. The film poster and DVD box illustration was created by acclaimed comic book artist Cliff Chiang (DC Comics’ Wonder Woman).
True Adolescents centers on Sam Bryant (Mark Duplass), a 34-year-old Seattle rocker with no job, no record deal, no girlfriend and no place to stay, until he finds room at his Aunt Sharon’s house in the suburbs. He’s the last guy anyone would pick to take two teens camping for some quality dude time.
Mark Duplass (Humpday, The League), Oscar-winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Bret Loehr (Identity), and Carr Thompson star in Craig Johnson’s feature directorial debut, releasing on VOD, digital platforms and DVD on August 30.
The movie follows an unlikely trio of two adolescent boys and one immature grown-up into the rugged Pacific Northwest, where unforeseen revelations and transformations force them to face adulthood—shot on location in Washington State’s scenic Cascade Mountains and the Olympic Peninsula. Set to an indie rock soundtrack featuring Band of Horses, The Black Keys and Devendra Banhart, among others, the film reminds us that sometimes you need to get lost to truly find yourself.
