Getting an itch for some nifty new DVDs?
Turn to Level 33 Entertainment, who is happy to release of the popular teenage romantic comedy Getting That Girl, available on VOD and DVD on January 14. Starring Gia Mantegna, Escher Holloway, Daniel Booko, Inbar Lavi and Will Rothhaar, this provocative, clever and funny contemporary tale of teenage social assimilation and parental befuddlement was an official selection of the Hollywood Film Festival.
Written and directed by Nathanael Coffman, Getting That Girl follows high school senior Mandy Meyers (Mantegna) as she is forced to make a transcontinental move from buttoned up Washington D.C. to decidedly relaxed Los Angeles when her father’s business relocates the family. Eager to start fresh, Mandy is excited to try things she’s never done before and have some fun. She makes a big splash on her first day at McDermott High where the school’s two hottest (and meanest) senior girls take her under their less-than-protective wings. The entire male student body equally takes note of Mandy’s fresh new face and she soon finds herself being aggressively pursued by a charismatic stoner and a star football player. Surviving the wild side of high school life in So Cal proves to be an often hilarious, and sometimes slightly scary, adventure in Getting That Girl.
Fun indeed.
