The Exploding Girl
Directed by Bradley Rust Gray • With Zoe Kazan, Mark Rendall, Franklin Pipp • Produced by SoandBrad
Twenty-year old Ivy heads home to New York for college spring-break with a fresh romance in her heart. When her best friend Al can’t find a place to stay, she asks her mother to take him in. Spending time in the city together strengthens their friendship, while Ivy’s boyfriend grows more distant over the phone.
It’s the start of a romantic summer in the city for Ivy, who, having a medical condition, has trained herself to manage her feelings in order to reduce the emotional stress on her body. But, this bottling of emotions eventually takes its toll when Ivy starts to lose control over her personal life.
