Ivy League Freshman, Aaron Milton (17) gets a different kind of education when he falls for Linda (34) a vivacious former wild-child who has returned to college to straighten out her life. The curriculum gets more challenging when Aaron meets Linda's sarcastic 14 year-old daughter, Beth – who quickly develops a crush on him. The math doesn't work in either direction but the dysfunctional triangle becomes a learning experience for all involved.

You know what, Aaron? This Barbie doll walks, talks, farts and has hair under her arms and, if you don't like it, maybe you should've gone for the other model.
Good, fun story. Good performances. Good film making.
I had the pleasure of seeing this movie at SXSW this year, and even
briefly go to meet the filmmaker – all and all, I really like this
There's something personal to this coming of age story that we can all
relate to – our first time. Our first year at college, the first time
we thought we were in love, got our heartbroken, failed, followed our
dreams, stuck up for ourselves, etc.
The story is simple – our hero, Aaron, starts his first year at an Ivy
League school. It's his first chance to get away from his controlling
mother, who has planned most of his life, and he can now follow more of
his own dreams. He struggles a little bit with making friends and
making the grades, but doesn't start finding himself until he meets
single mother, Linda, and her daughter, Beth.
They all struggle with acceptance for who they are and who they want to
be – waiting for life to happen to them instead of making life happen
This movie is fun, humorous, and enjoyable. Every performance in this
movie is worth seeing, from the acting to the film making. If you have
the chance to see it, I recommend it.
