Feature Film – Growing Up is a satire of classic 80’s teen coming of age films. It’s a hip hybrid of Garden State and Crazy, with a powerhouse cast including Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction), Rachel Blanchard (Flight of the Conchords, Wallace Langham (Little Miss Sunshine), and a breakout lead performance by Steve Yafee. The film features a soundtrack of some of Canada’s hottest music artists. Well crafted and edited, the film has an engaging and entertaining storyline.
