Director: Elizabeth Mims, Jason Tippet
Friendship, first love and faith plus homelessness is showcased in this special coming-of-age documentary.
Best friends Kevin and Garrison spend their days skating and listening to punk music, seemingly inseparable until Kevin kisses Garrison's girlfriend Skye. As the three navigate the heady adolescent dramas of friendship, first love and rebellion, filmmakers Elizabeth Mims and Jason Tippet capture it all in this beautifully shot observational documentary. With its immensely likeable and interesting teen stars and its infectious soundtrack, Only the Young is a charming coming-of-age film. “An unqualified hit.” - Variety
