Back in March, a small independent comedy entitled Premature premiered at SXSW. The film at that time was probably one of the most talked about films at the festival. By the time the festival ended, I heard everyone who saw the film label it as “Groundhog Day meets American Pie.” IFC Midnight picked up the film after its festival run and will be releasing it in select theaters as well as On-Demand on July 2, 2014. In the meantime, be sure to read a little bit more about the film below and check out the latest trailer and poster.
Plot: You’re in highschool. Facing the biggest day of your life. You need to nail a college interview ensuring your admittance to your parents’ beloved alma mater. To keep cool when your life-long crush finally seems to show interest. And then you wake up one morning and realize someone’s playing a sick joke, because you’re reliving the day’s events over and over…and over again. Are you A.) stuck in a dream? B.) Experiencing déjà vu? C.) Having a psychotic break? Whether it’s finding a way to get into college, into your life-long crush’s pants, or having an even bigger epiphany, you must figure out how to break the cycle before losing your mind.
