The Game

The Game

| 28 min

This perceptive short fiction film by George Kaczender (You’re No Good) offers an affecting look at teenage dating. It’s the typical boy-meets-girl game, but played without rules and at a time when the boy must prove himself. Touching on the subject of teenage sexuality, the film shows that the game often starts with a challenge to the boy’s masculine ego from his peers.
