As we’ve been doing all week so far in anticipation of the start of the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX we’ve got another preview for you of a film making its world premiere at the fest. The film in question, Cherry, stars Kyle Gallner, Brittany Robertson and Laura Allen and tells the coming of age story of a sheltered college freshman learning about life.
Aaron (Gallner), is said college freshmen and as he embarks on his journey it soon turns out life is more complicated than dorm parties, co-eds and the college’s elite engineering program when Aaron meets Linda (Laura Allen). When Linda invites him home for dinner, Aaron thinks he’s getting lucky.
Instead he meets Beth (Robertson), Linda’s punk, sarcastic and intense 14-year-old daughter who immediately develops a huge crush on him. Once that happpens, Aaron is then caught between these two powerful women and he soon learns that life and love are much harder to calculate than he ever expected.
Cherry will have its world premiere at SXSW. Check out the trailer after the break.
