Crush is the latest picture from American High. Their most recent film I Love My Dad won the Grand Jury Award at SXSW. They have also released other teen rom-coms on Hulu, such as Sex Appeal and Plan B. The company has done a great job of capturing the high school experience and presenting it in relatable and fun way.
Their latest release sounds like it will be a worthy addition. When an aspiring young artist is forced to join her high school track team, she uses it as an opportunity to pursue the girl she’s been harboring a long-time crush on. But she soon finds herself falling for an unexpected teammate and discovers what real love feels like.
The trailer for Crush hits all the right teen rom-com beats. There are the misunderstandings, confusion, and frustration that are all a part of being a teenager.
The cast includes Rowan Blanchard, Auli’i Cravalho, Isabella Ferreira, Tyler Alvarez, Teala Dunn, Rico Paris, Addie Weyrich, with Aasif Mandvi, Michelle Buteau and Megan Mullally.
Crush premieres on Hulu April 29
