First Date

Co-directors Manuel Crosby and Darren Knapp’s film was one of the big surprises of the recent Sundance Film Festival. Not only because of the series of unfortunate events that happen to the main character, but also because of the mash-up of genres served up by the filmmakers. First Date is a unique combination of coming of age film, romance, dark comedy and a suspenseful thriller. It starts off innocently enough, as the title implies. Once Mike, a teenager, has plucked up the courage to ask a schoolmate out, he realizes that she would have a lot more respect for him if he had a car. He becomes the proud owner of a run-down '65 Chrysler, convinced that getting the keys to the car means all his problems will be over; what he doesn’t realize is that they’ve only just begun. Especially with a whole gallery of colorful and dangerous characters standing between him and his long-awaited date.
