WORLD NARRATIVE COMPETITION

JACK AND DIANE

Directed by Bradley Rust Gray
FEATURE NARRATIVE 93 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE JACK AND DIANE

Tomboy Jack and bubbly Diane fall head over heels in love one hot summer in New York City. But neither Jack's tough exterior nor Diane's demure innocence prepare them for the intensity of their feelings. When Diane reveals she must leave the city for school in Europe at the end of the summer, Jack pushes her away. As Diane struggles to maintain their budding romance, she must also try to conceal from Jack the increasingly dark and violent visions that have begun to plague her.

Weaving horror elements into a distinctive and fresh yet timeless and universal first-love story, TFF alum Bradley Rust Gray (The Exploding Girl) applies his inimitable vision to this idiosyncratic story of the joys and terrors of first love. Riley Keough and Juno Temple bring a sweetness to their roles, which is offset by punctuations of macabre imagery to infuse their traditional summer love narrative with an ominous energy that is all the more evocative of their passionate love. It's natural and beautiful, but also monstrous and frightening—and ultimately, like the film itself, wholly and wonderfully unique.
