  • Four young kids from Metro Detroit experience memories that will last a lifetime in this gentle coming-of-age story from first-time feature filmmaker David Robert Mitchell. It's the last night of summer, yet Rob, Maggie, Scott, and Claudia still don't feel as if they've experienced the defining moments they will look back upon in old age. As conversations reveal secret crushes and first kisses send hormones raging, all four find that it's not the big events, but the small intimate moments that leave the biggest impression.

  • Critic Reviews
    "With THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER, first-time writer-director David Robert Mitchell tells a coming-of-age tale with such freshness and bemused insight it's as if it has never been told before."
    Los Angeles Times

    "It's beautiful....Mitchell leaves plenty of room for you and your own memories, whatever they may be or however you grew up, to inhabit the 10-or-so square blocks limned by the story."

    "[A] quiet, observant film....The film's beauty is never obtrusive..."
    New York Times

    "THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER has fresh, lovely moments....The unknown actors in the cast come off as authentic teenagers..." -- Grade: B-
