Calling all fans of Degrassi: series writer-turned-director Kate Melville’s feature film debut is an adolescent slice-of-life that commands attention with its wry humour and awesome performance by Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black).

Forced to repeat her senior year in high school, Claire (Maslany) has a reputation for sliding into bad habits. At night, she escapes to would-be rock star Jim (McCarthy), while at school, she bonds with Henry (Van Wyck), a nerdy freshman she used to babysit.

Jim and Henry couldn’t be more different, but that becomes part of the point. In this playful, cool and whip-smart coming-of-age film, Emmy-winner Maslany shows us the emotional depth of a rare character that learns the difference between sex, intimacy and friendship.
