The First Time

If there’s one genre that will never go out of style, it’s the coming-of-age film. On the heels of the theatrical release of “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” -- which we greatly enjoyed -- is a trailer for the upcoming Sundance-tipped and Jon Kasdan-helmed film “The First Time.”

Written and directed by Kasdan -- yes, son of that Kasdan -- the film focuses on the burgeoning romance between two virginal teens as they navigate the hormone-fueled rough waters of adolescence. With the cast of teen stars -- Dylan O’Brien, Britt Robertson, Craig Roberts and Victoria Justice -- and based on Kasdan’s previous effort, the cloying “In The Land Of Women,” we can’t really see how the film will resist falling into typical teen-film shmaltz. Though, to be fair, it was an official selection for Sundance earlier this year, so the committee must have seen something in the film. Here's the official synopsis:

Dave (O'Brien) is a high school senior who spends most of his time pining away over a girl he can’t have. Aubrey (Robertson), a junior with artistic aspirations, has a hot boyfriend who doesn’t quite understand her or seem to care. Dave and Aubrey meet one night at a party. A casual conversation sparks an instant connection, and, over the course of a weekend, things turn magical, romantic, complicated and funny as Aubrey and Dave discover what it's like to fall in love for the first time. Director/screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan skillfully captures a moment of adolescence that rings resolutely true.

“The First Time” will hit theaters on October 19th -- kind of late to start marketing, isn't it? Check out the trailer below.
