Synopsis

Having longed for Margo since childhood, shy, sensible Quentin, now in his final weeks of high school, is stunned when she draws him into a night of mischief-making. He wakes with his love rekindled only to discover Margo has disappeared. Convinced she has left him clues to find her, Quentin persuades his two similarly cautious friends to set out on a road trip to track her down, on the basis that they will return in time to attend their Prom. While nostalgically touching on the usual high school movie tropes, the film also provides a refreshingly sensitive and witty portrayal of coming-of-age from a teenage boys point of view, without tipping too far over the edge of crude, or consigning the girls to stereotype.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
