Sweetheart is a sharply observed coming-of-age story that will make you wince and laugh in painful recognition of universal truths. Seventeen year old AJ is not one of life’s shiny, happy people. A family holiday at a trailer park is her idea of hell. A poorly dressed, moody misfit, she lets everyone know that she would rather be anywhere else. Then she spies flirty, free-spirited lifeguard Isla who might just be the girl of her dreams. Can AJ dare to take a first step on the road to happiness? With echoes of My So-Called Life and Juno, Sweetheart is a quirky, nostalgic coming-of-age tale for young and old alike.
