I'm a huge fan of Halloween, it's probably my favorite holiday of the year, but I don't take it as far as Tony Phillips. This is the first trailer for a coming-of-age dramady called Grow Up, Tony Phillips from the director of My Sucky Teen Romance, Emily Hagins. You see, Tony Philips takes Halloween to a whole new level. His life basically revolves around it, and almost everyone around him thinks it's time for him to grow up.
It looks like a solidly fun film. It's set to premiere at this year's SXSW, and here's the synopsis...
Who doesn't love Halloween? All of Tony Phillips' (Tony Vespe) high school friends, apparently. It's senior year and they've now decided that they're too cool for Halloween. When his older cousin (AJ Bowen) returns home right before the holiday, Tony starts to wonder if he really is the dork everyone thinks he is, or if he's just ahead of the curve.
I found the trailer over at AICN, and The Kidd says that it's "probably worth a watch for any of us out there that were ever told we should grow up and put away childish things, because that's not what responsible adults do. Fuck those people." Enjoy the trailer!
