First Girl I Loved (M)

Winner of the Best of NEXT Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, First Girl I Loved is a poignant coming-of-age tale that captures all the anxiety, bravery, and heartbreak of first love.

On assignment for her high-school yearbook, social-misfit Anne charmingly hits it off with the beautiful star of the softball team, Sasha. But when Anne tells her best friend Clifton about her new crush, he reveals a hidden jealousy that threatens more than just the girls’ budding romance.

Writer/director Kerem Sanga tells this remarkably touching story with a multifaceted style that is as fresh as it is daring. Brimming with authenticity and humour, First Girl I Loved offers a delightful, contemporary perspective on the jitters of new romance and the age-old heartbreak of love.
