Movies, Music Videos & TV Shows

The story of the film revolves around a young teenager who throws a huge house party to win over his crush and impress his friends by thus being certified cool dude!

While speaking to Bustle, the film's director Asher Levin opened up about his debut film and experience, "The movie is a coming of age story, and it’s about how young people today are so glued to their phones and to social media. Some of that is really great because everyone is more connected to each other, but a lot of it makes it so that there are alter-egos – you might try to be someone that you’re really not,” he said.

The producers of the film picked Brent as the lead because they felt, Brent would perfectly fit in the age bracket and storyline of the film. The film's director Levin also said that Brent was the perfect candidate to portray the role of Alexander in the film. Impressed with his work, Levin also called hin a "future superstar"

“The idea was to bring someone like Brent, who has such an incredible reach with people 12-18 and above, to get them to watch one of these movies. Brent allowed us to have a whole captive audience. Brent also has an amazing mix of qualities that makes for a great leading man in a teen film,” Levin told Bustle.
