A teenage wallflower turns to her hard-drinking, shut-in grandma for sex advice.
Writer/director: Marly Reed
Producers: Marly Reed, Nancy Shaw
I’m really fascinated by those cringe-worthy coming-of-age experiences. Everyone has them – the ones that make you want to die in the moment but become badges of honor later in life, stories to laugh over with your friends at parties.
This story (which, I should say, is NOT based on any real experience) was invented as back-story for the protagonist in my feature script but when I decided to make a short with the same characters, this felt like a nice little self-contained adventure.
