ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Produced by Jay and Mark Duplass, this charming coming-of-age story is about two high schoolers who fall into first love, only to discover life is a lot more complicated than they could ever imagine. "[YOUNG HEARTS'] use of representation, its delicate, quiet sweetness and its telling of a story that is often told, but not often told well, has the special ability to show us something that we haven’t seen before," states Mark Duplass. Sarah Sherman and Zachary Ray Sherman's film gives audiences a nuanced and authentic look at Generation Z, eschewing the extreme gloss (or despair!) that we often see in its portrayal. Anjini Taneja Azhar remarkably embodies the lead role using a mix of warmth, confidence, and uncertainty to convey her complicated and evolving truth, and Quinn Liebling portrays Tilly with a thoughtfulness and unique sense of awareness that invites us to reconsider teenagers (in particular, budding young men) and what they have to offer in these highly digitized and socially disconnected times.
