High school is a weird time for everyone. Everything is awkward and one bad day feels like the end of the world. What if one bad day happened over and over. The same bad day. Personal hell? If I were stuck in high school, definitely yes. But, what if you could go back, knowing what you know now? Would you?
In Premature, Dan Beers brings us his feature debut about a high school kid named Rob. It is a seemingly formulaic set up. Kid needs to nail his college interview, score with his crush, and move on from the expectations of the world around him. You’ve got your checklist for the high school comedy; boy next door, childhood female best friend, vulgar sidekick, prodigy oddball, stereotypical hot blonde, jackass jocks, college admissions interviewer, and overbearing parental units. The twist in this story is that whenever Rob approaches, let’s say, sexual gratification, his day starts all over again, ala Groundhog Day. His terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day… if you will.
