“The movie is adorable but a truly terrible title. It’s like the producers have a death wish.”
Lonely college freshman Alex (Cooper Raiff) has closed himself off from his classmates, who all appear to have this whole “college thing” figured out. Home is 1500 miles away and all he can think about is transferring to a school closer to his family. Everything changes one night when Alex takes a leap and attends a party at his campus’ notorious “Shithouse,” where he forges a strong connection with his RA, Maggie (Dylan Gelula). When she ignores him the next day and seems to have forgotten about their amazing night, Alex feels desperate for things to go back to how they were before. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize (Narrative Film) at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival.
