David Robert Mitchell’s film debut back in 2010 was The Myth of the American Sleepover. Premiering in the critics weeks at the Festival de Cannes, this poetic, coming of age story is truly the Dazed and Confused of this generation. It’s essentially the same universe as It Follows…just a lot less scarier. Both of Mitchell’s films take place in Detroit depicting a world of adolescence and the loss of innocence through the eyes of our country’s youth.
Check out the trailer and then go watch The Myth of the American Sleepover.
