Incredibly sweet
7 January 2017 | by ReganRebeccaSee all my reviews

You wouldn't think that a movie in which an adult woman and a teenage boy flirt with romance could be described as sweet but sweet is exactly what this movie is.

Phoebe (Nadia Litz, whose baby face helps to undercut the creepiness of the tale), is about to graduate university (which would make her roughly 21). She's a total type A, obsessing over making valedictorian, piling on extra curriculars and emotionally suffocating her roommate and best friend (only friend) Robin. Eventually Robin cracks under the pressure of being Phoebe's best friend and plus one to everything. She tells Phoebe off, mentioning in a list of complaints that, among other things, Phoebe has never had a boyfriend. Phoebe is embarrassed but also decides to approach this as an unsocialized type-A would and adds getting a boyfriend to her list of things to do. After a date goes wrong she ends up hanging out with Frazer (Adrien Dixon) her 14 year old neighbour who she pays to mow her lawn. Frazer is actually impressed by Phoebe's knowledge and the two end up growing closer and closer.

The film definitely toes the line about coming across as icky, but Dorfman and her co-writer Jennifer Deyell handle the material well and keep it just innocent enough and just awkward enough so that it never crosses over into full on creepiness.

It's also a super low-budget film but this somehow adds to the cartoonishness and sweetness of the movie.
