The First Time

Being the sucker for coming-of-age films/(non-cliché) teenage rom-coms that I am, The First Time became an instant favorite of mine. I had previously read about it on IMDb earlier this year, but forgot about it not long after. Thankfully, Julia sent me the link to her blog post about her own summer film festival just this week, where The First Time was one of the many movies to be included in her list. I remembered the brief moment of excitement that I felt when I first heard about the film ("OMG I HAVE TO WATCH THIS"), and so I watched it. Twice. The second time, with my mom.

I'm not going to spoil anything for you guys, but if you plan on watching this with your parents, I'm warning you ahead of time that there are some pretty saucy scenes (nothing too Rated R though) that could possibly make things awkward. But other than that, it's a brilliant film. Britt Robertson's character was a bit of a Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but... Dylan O'Brien, guys. There were some cliché moments, but the director managed to make it work, so all in all, it's a pretty damn entertaining film. The cinematography was really pretty too.

Watch the full movie here.
