Dare is a terrific new indie film.
It's being released Fri (11/13) in a limited number of theaters.
Seek it out!
It's about the sexual awakening of 3 high school seniors, (two boys, one girl).
It's well written, well directed, and well acted by the leads and an exceptionally deep supporting cast. (Also, the opening sequence -- credits and titles -- is one of the best, most original, and most effective I've seen in years.)
The film stars Emmy Rossum, Zach Gilford, and Ashley Springer, with Rooney Mara as a close friend. It was made by first timers... Adam Salky -- a guy to watch -- directed, from a superior script by David Brind.
Here is a conversation I had with Emmy Rossum, at the Hamptons Film Festival (HIFF), about herself and about DARE:
