ONLY THE YOUNG
Date: January 28th at 7pm, Brattle Theatre, Cambridge
Details: 73 mins, USA, 2012. Boston Premiere
Filmmakers: Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims
Synopsis: ONLY THE YOUNG is the story of the children that inhabit a small desert town in Southern California–a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. The three teenagers of focus must find things to do in a place that offers nothing–but in observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims’ delicate, ethereal filmmaking and ONLY THE YOUNG’s innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence.
