Love That Boy is the story of Phoebe (Nadia Litz, The Five Senses), a sophisticated and adventurous but socially inept overachiever, unrecognized in a world run by C students. Phoebe’s life is totally dominated by her “To Do Before Graduation” list. When her best friend Robyn (Nikki Barnett) dumps her two weeks before graduation, she points out that Phoebe’s list is missing one essential thing – a boyfriend. Not wanting to be alone at graduation – the most important day of her life – Phoebe begins an ill-fated quest to find a boyfriend, with hilarious results. Then she inadvertently falls in love. The only problem is, he’s 14…

“From goofy beginning to emotionally satisfying end, Love That Boy is a triumph of talent over limited means. Young Canuck helmer Andrea Dorfman tops her amiable debut Parsley Days with a sophomore effort that is stylish, funny and very well acted. Pic reps best entry yet in the ambitious “Seat 3A and 3C” series.” – Variety
