The teen movies of the 1980s have proven to some of the most enduring in movie history. The movies of the time were so loved, they continued to be referenced and emulated today. Another sign of their timeless appeal is the fact there are still films released chronicling the lives of teenagers during that time. 18 to Party is the latest entry into the field.
Check out the new trailer for the movie below.
Press release details below.
It’s 1984 and outside a small-town nightclub, a group of 8th graders gather, grappling with a spate of recent suicides, UFO sightings, their absentee parents, and each other. 18 TO PARTY spans a single evening in the lives of these kids, but manages to transport us fully to a time when waiting for something to happen felt just as significant as the thing itself.
Gorgeously atmospheric, with a pulsating sense of anticipation that steadily builds, the film pulls us into the fears, wounds, and desires of each character, ultimately revealing that hope may arrive from the last place we expect.
The meticulously authentic production design, killer soundtrack, and universally excellent performances recall the spirit of classic 80s teen movies like Stand By Me and The Breakfast Club. 18 TO PARTY is a spot-on love letter to Gen X, awkward teenagers, and the transcendent power of friendship.
OPENING IN VIRTUAL THEATERS IN LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK AND MAJOR CITIES ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6 WITH A VOD RELEASE TO FOLLOW ON ALL MAJOR PLATFORMS ON DECEMBER 1.
