High School senior Jake tries out for the basketball team to win the attention of his dreamy new next-door neighbor


Asian-Canadian teen Jake finds himself trying out for the basketball team to spend more time with his dreamy, openly gay new neighbor Aleks, which complicates things with his girlfriend and her desire to deepen their relationship. Caught between his father’s varsity expectations and new feelings bubbling to the surface, Jake finds himself heading for a serious reckoning.

A classic coming-of-age comedy/drama set in the digital age, director Jason Karman’s GOLDEN DELICIOUS skillfully captures the complications of young love, teen angst, and the winding path to adulthood.

This film will be followed by a Q&A.
